The Ho Chi Minh City administration has introduced a design for the annual Nguyen Hue Flower Street to celebrate the coming Tet (Lunar New Year) holiday, which will begin around the latter half of January.

Happy and prosperous spring will be the theme for this year, the Year of the Cat, according to eastern zodiac.

Every year, Nguyen Hue Street in District 1, which has a pedestrian-only zone down its heart, transforms into a ‘flower street’ during Lunar New Year.

This year, it will be open from 7:00 pm January 19 to 9:00 pm January 26, one day longer than previous editions, with the decorations starting on January 3, according to the organizers.

Like in previous years, environment-friendly materials will be used for the decorations.

To usher in the Year of the Cat, most of the event’s concepts and decorations will pay homage to the animal, with 70 mascots being set up along the street.

The entrance will also feature a clowder of cat displays.

The highlight of the design will be a 40-meter-long glass bridge.

The annual flower show, which accentuates the festive culture of Tet, has become hugely popular and attracts more than a million visitors a year.

There are also other annual flower festivals and markets in Ho Chi Minh City during the Lunar New Year, such as those in Gia Dinh Park, which borders the three districts of Phu Nhuan, Go Vap, and Tan Binh, and Le Van Tam Park in District 1, as well as one along Tran Xuan Soan Street in District 7.
