A summer festival, titled ‘Quy Nhon - Sea Paradise - Brightness for Growth,’ kicked off at Nguyen Tat Thanh Square in Quy Nhon, the capital city of Binh Dinh, on Saturday night, with a stunning high-altitude fireworks show attracting thousands of locals and tourists.

The high-altitude fireworks were set off for the first time in the south-central province, sparkling in the night sky over the city, as well as amazing revelers.

“I did enjoy the fireworks show. It was glorious when the fireworks exploded,” Nguyen Gia Huy, a 22-year-old resident of Quy Nhon, expressed his excitement.

“I thought that all onlookers were exhilarated to see the pyrotechnic show,” he added.

The 15-minute fireworks display was part of the opening ceremony of the festival, which featured a series of music performances lighting up the stage. The fest is set to last until August.

This summer, the province was set to treat locals and visitors to a wide array of music, cultural, and sports events. 

Among them are the ongoing Teqball World Series in Quy Nhon, scheduled to wrap up on Sunday, a marathon event in late June, and a tourism, movie, and sports fest.

Nguyen Le Phuc, deputy head of the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism, assessed that Binh Dinh Province is a potential place for sea-based tourism in Vietnam and the south-central region.

In 2023, Binh Dinh welcomed over five million tourists, up 21.4 percent year on year, while earning an estimated VND16.4 trillion (US$645.5 million) in tourism revenue, a 25-percent year-on-year increase.

The province was estimated to serve over 5.6 million travelers in the first half of 2024, skyrocketing 106.1 percent year on year, reported Binh Dinh News.
