This year’s theme for the Ornamental Creature Festival will be the 1,000th anniversary of Thang Long-Hanoi. The organising board said the festival is due to take place in Gia Dinh Park, HCM City from August 31 to September 6.
There will be the creations of over 300 clubs from 45 ornamental creature associations nationwide including the Belgian Ornamental Creatures Club and representatives from other countries in the region.
Three Vietnam record holders will also be on display at the festival including a thousand-year old tree, Vietnam’s biggest wooden dragon and Vietnam’s biggest map which were all made by ornamental creatures clubs.
Many social activities will also be held during the festival including the campaign “Children walk for health and the environment”, a children’s painting contest, a flower parade and the voting for the 2010 Ornamental Creature business of the year.
