The event will attract about 80 European dancers, who, in colorful costumes, will entertain local people and tourists by putting on a range of unique performances. 

Moreover, a low-range fireworks display is planned to be held on Ho Xuan Huong Street during the closing ceremony of the festival on June 27th.

In addition, diverse activities will be held throughout the summer in an effort to promote tourism, such as a national volleyball tournament, a Banh Chung festival to celebrate the delicious Vietnamese square glutinous rice cakes, and a cycling tournament, all of which will take place in early July.

According to the Sam Son city People’s Committee, the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has greatly affected the local tourism industry. By June the city is expected to have received 663,000 arrivals, reaching 11.92% of its overall plan and earning 447.4 billion VND, or just 8.13% of the plan./.
