Despite having yet to be inaugurated, a flower festival with the theme ‘Xuan Phon Vinh’ (Prosperous Spring) in the Phu My Hung New Urban Area in District 7, Ho Chi Minh City has attracted multiple visitors.

The flower festival officially opens at 6:00 pm on Sunday.

Being held along Ban Nguyet (Crescent) Lake, the spring flower road is divided into three segments dedicated to Phu (Wealth), My (Beauty), and Hung (Prosperity) themes.

The ‘Wealth’ segment includes miniatures of bumper crops and red envelopes symbolizing the affluence.

In addition, statues of cats, the zodiac animal of the upcoming lunar year, gold ingots, and bags of golden coins are to be on display in the segment.

Meanwhile, the ‘Beauty’ section is decorated with miniatures featuring the culture of various countries.

The ‘Prosperity’ segment shows the development and expectations for a brighter 2023, when Phu My Hung Corporation, the organizer of the flower festival, will celebrate its 30th anniversary.

“I come here every year to have good moments with my family and friends. Miniature landscapes are eye-catching and diversified,” said Tra, a Phu My Hung resident.

Thuy An, residing in District 1, excitedly said that “the flower festival has yet to officially open, but my daughter and I come here to take a stroll and take photos. This is the first time we have been here and feel that Tet is around the corner.”
