Vietnam and Russia performed during the curtain-raiser of the 2019 Da Nang International Fireworks Festival on the Han River on Saturday.
The host team Da Nang-Viet Nam took ‘The Legendary River Banks’ as their performance’s theme for the opening ceremony, featuring Da Nang city’s vigorous growth over the years.
Meanwhile, Team Fireworks Center Khan from Russia thrilled the spectators with their impressive show entitled ‘Dance of Fire and Water’. According to Russian contestants, fire and water are powerful natural elements, unbridled energies. Two antagonists, 2 different worlds that have coexisted with each other for millions of years, are inevitable for life.
“The Da Nang International Fireworks Festival is recognized as 1 of 10 leading events selected by the Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism. The annual event has received an enthusiastic welcome from the local people and visitors to Da Nang. This year’s festival promises to entertain the audience with amazing fireworks shows and various sideline events,” said Huynh Duc Tho, Chairman of the Da Nang municipal People’s Committee.
Le Hai Quyen, a visitor from Dak Lak province, said: “The Russian team’s performance showed a great harmony in their teamwork while the Vietnamese team played more music. Each team left its own impression on the audience.”
The fireworks festival – the 10th edition since 2008 – will feature teams from Russia, Brazil, Belgium, Finland, England, China, Italy, and Vietnam. This year’s event, titled ‘Stories by the Rivers’, will see teams describing the beauty and culture of typical rivers in their countries during the month-long festival.
