Residents and tourists in Ho Chi Minh City excitedly admired works of art made of fruits at the Southern Fruit Festival-Suoi Tien Farm Festival 2024 in Suoi Tien Theme Park in Thu Duc City on the weekend.

The theme park, the Ho Chi Minh City Union of Friendship Organizations, the municipal Department of Tourism, and the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development on Sunday awarded prizes for fruit models in a fruit arranging competition as part of the festival.

A contestant from Dong Nai Province, a neighbor of Ho Chi Minh City, won the first prize.

Over the past 27 years, the competition has helped preserve and promote southern people’s traditional art and attract many local and foreign tourists.

Artisans from various localities, such as Ben Tre, Tien Giang, Long An, Dong Nai, and Binh Duong Provinces as well as Ho Chi Minh City participated in the competition in 15 teams.
