Residents of Ho Chi Minh City will have the chance to see fireworks from a well-known park at this year’s Independence Day, September 2.

The municipal administration has permitted local travel company Saigontourist to hold the annual fireworks displays at Dam Sen Park in District 11.

The show is scheduled to take place from 9:00 to 9:15 pm on September 2, according to a decision signed by the city’s chairman Nguyen Thanh Phong.

Lighting fireworks is an annual cultural activity to celebrate Vietnam’s Independence Day.

It’s a chance for people to enjoy their time and a great way to attract foreign tourists to Vietnam.

The activity is considered a major part in promoting the city’s tourism, and a motivation for its development. 

The fireworks show has previously been held at the Thu Thiem tunnel in District 2 for a number of years.
