A large square with a capacity of over 10,000 people was inaugurated in Dong Xoai City under Binh Phuoc Province, southern Vietnam on Thursday.

The square, which features an open space and sparkling lighting systems, is expected to help make the city distinctive.

The inauguration of the square on Phu Xuan Street in Tan Phu Ward marked the fifth anniversary of the founding of Dong Xoai.

The structure, costing VND50 billion (US$2.06 million) sourced from the city’s budget, spans 21.9 hectares.

The square encompasses a big yard, a 6,000-square-meter space for events and festivals, a performing stage, a sports zone, a flower garden, and an amusement and entertainment section.

A water music stage and 10 LED screens are among the highlights of the square.

During the opening ceremony on Thursday night, a series of art performances amazed event-goers, including modern dances, Then singing, a form of traditional art combining literature, music, and dancing, and hat cheo, or traditional opera popular in northern Vietnam.

Locals and visitors immersed themselves in the lively atmosphere as well as cultural and entertainment activities.

A representative of the Dong Xoai administration said that the city is home to lots of parks, flower gardens, and public open areas, but it faces a shortage of large public amusement and entertainment areas.

The opening of the square not only helps ease this shortage, but also serves as a gift to the city’s residents when it turns five.
