The Hanoitimes – In the evening of February 16, the 2015 Flower Street Festival on Ham Nghi street in HCM city was officially opened.
Attending the opening ceremony were: President Truong Tan Sang; Deputy Chairwoman of the National Assembly Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan; HCM City Party Secretary Le Thanh Hai and representatives of central and local citizens.
This year the scale of the Tet Flower Street remains unchanged from the previous year and this special street will stretch 580 meters from the area next to Quach Thi Trang Roundabout in front of the landmark Ben Thanh Market to Ho Tung Mau Street near the Saigon River.
In the Year of the Goat, visitors can see statues of a goat family on the street. Each detail of these goals is carefully crafted to demonstrate specific features of the mountain goat from the northern province of Ninh Binh.
Apart from a number of trees and flowers, handicrafts such as dolls representing indigenous people from the country’s north, center and south, bamboo blinds covering flower baskets, and goats made of straw will be used to decorate the flower street.
The countryside which can be seen through a yellow paddy field and cottages will be blended with the images of modern city life, especially those of a metro line which is under construction in the center of the city. This will give spectators a complete picture of the nation’s diversity.
The 2015 Flower Street Festival on Ham Nghi Street will run from 7 p.m. on February 16 (the 28th of the twelfth lunar month) to 10 p.m. on February 22 (the 4th of the first lunar month).
