30,000 to partake in program, including military parade, to celebrate Vietnam’s National Day

Thursday, August 13, 2015, 16:24 GMT+7

A grand program including a meeting, a military parade and some marches will take place in Hanoi on September 2 to celebrate the August Revolution (August 19) and National Day (September 2), the organizers have said.   About 30,000 soldiers, militiamen and civilians will take part in these activities that will be conducted on the Ba Dinh Square and a number of streets in the capital, the national committee on the organization of major anniversaries in 2014-15 said at a press briefing on Wednesday. A 21-gun salute will be part of the program on the square to commemorate the anniversaries.

The program will air live on national broadcaster Vietnam Television and Radio the Voice of Vietnam. The military parade will be followed by artistic marches centered on “Vietnam – Aspiration for Peace,” which will be performed by about 2,500 artists, craftsmen, and students of art schools. The parade and marches to mark the 70th anniversary of the August Revolution and National Day this year will be larger than those that were organized to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Dien Bien Phu Victory (May 7, 1954 - May 7, 2014) and the 40th anniversary of Reunification Day (April 30, 1975 - April 30, 2015), Huynh Vinh Ai, Deputy Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism, said. When asked by how much the upcoming program will cost, the organizing board answered the total figure is not available now, but it added that thrift will be kept in mind.
