One of Hanoi’s iconic parks will be turned into a snow-crested wintry spectacle in Vietnam’s largest ever Christmas festival, which is slated for later this month and is expected to welcome a whopping 40,000 fest-goers, according to the Vietnam News Agency on Saturday.

The event, titled “Christmas Festival 2014,” is set to take place at the capital’s Ho Tay Park on December 23 and 24- Christmas Eve.

Following the success of its Halloween Festival 2014, which drew over 20,000 participants, HeartLink Co. is preparing for its upcoming Christmas Festival in coordination with Ho Tay Co.

The event will also feature a gorgeous snow path, and a slew of captivating street festivities.

Kids will be showered with gifts by around 100 Santa Claus, and join boisterous dances with some hundred Santa Claus ladies and their grandchildren.

Other highlights include wintry games and a photo contest titled “Khoanh Khac Noel 2014 An Tuong” (The Most Impressive Christmas Moments 2014.)

Ho Tay Park will also be richly adorned with Christmas decorations at its gateway and other places so visitors can freely pose for photos.
