The 2017 Da Nang International Fireworks Festival (DIFF 2017) will run for two months from next April, the municipal administration announced at a press conference on Monday.
The festival is the continuation of the Da Nang International Fireworks Competition held in the city since 2008, said Huynh Van Hung, director of the Da Nang Department of Sports and Culture.
Eight teams from the UK, Australia, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Japan, China, and Vietnam will take part in the eight-week festival, which will run from April 29 to June 24, 2017, Hung said.
Local property developer Sun Group will take over the festival’s organization starting next year, Hung added.
According to DIFF 2017 organizers, fireworks displays will be organized every Saturday night during the course of the festival, and there will be complementary events to entertain visitors throughout the week.
These events include Cham Culture Festivals (Wednesdays), Street Festivals (Fridays), Beer Festivals (every day), International Cuisine Festivals (every day), and Sculpture Festivals.
Last year, the event ran for two days and was competed for by teams from Australia, Poland, South Africa, the U.S., and Vietnam.
