Fireworks performances will be organized at two locations in Ho Chi Minh City on the night of April 30 to mark Vietnam's Reunification Day.

The pyrotechnic shows will take place at the Saigon River Tunnel in Thu Duc City and Dam Sen Cultural Park in District 11 from 9:00 pm to 9:15 pm on April 30, according to the plan of the municipal Department of Culture and Sports.

The fireworks displays are designed to celebrate Reunification Day (April 30, 1975) and International Workers’ Day (May 1, 1886).

There will also be a series of events to mark the occasions, including photo exhibitions at President Ho Chi Minh Monument Park, Nguyen Hue Pedestrian Street, Dong Khoi Street, and Labor Culture Palace, a cross country tournament, artistic light decoration along downtown streets, and introduction of a book on the history of the Ho Chi Minh City government.

On Reunification Day, leaders of Ho Chi Minh City will offer incense and flowers to late President Ho Chi Minh and late President Ton Duc Thang, as well as visit the city’s martyr cemetery.

Fireworks performances are often part of the celebration of Reunification Day in Ho Chi Minh City.

However, the shows were canceled in 2021 due to the complicated developments of the COVID-19 pandemic.
