Danang prepares the third International Fireworks Competition

The Danang City expects to attract about 60,000 people, of which 20,000 from outside the city for International Fireworks Competition 2010 which will be organized on March 27 and 28 in the city.

With the theme Huyen thoai song Han (Legend of Han River), this year’s International Fireworks Competition is one of seven country’s major cultural events to celebrate the 1,000th anniversary of Thang Long – Hanoi and will have competition between 5 teams from Portugal, the US, Japan, France and Vietnam. During the two nights, each team will perform for 20 minutes with music.

On this occasion, the city will also organize a parade of flower floats, a Vietnamese craft village festival, a kite-flying competition, an exhibition of embroidered pictures, a photo exhibition on international fireworks, and an exhibition named "Danang 2010 – a new stage."

Organising board plans to issue 25,000 tickets priced at VND200,000 each for the competition. Tran Quang Thanh, Deputy Director of municipal Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism said that buyers have registered to buy half of the total of tickets.

Because the big number of tourists will come to Danang for International Fireworks Competition, most of the city’s hotels were fully booked so tour operators must arrange accommodation for their guests in nearby Hoi An, Chan May or Lang Co.

Thanh said the city had met with Vietnam Airlines to discuss increase of flights to and from the city when number of passengers goes up.

He also said that after this year’s competition, Danang would organize the event every two years.
