VOV.VN - The debut Sa Dec flower festival is scheduled to take place from December 30, 2023, to January 5, 2024 in Sa Dec city of Dong Thap province, with the event featuring a wide range of activities.
The highlight of the festival will be an exhibition of flowers and ornamental trees from the Mekong Delta region, along with a fair showcasing One Commune One Product (OCOP) goods.
A contest on flower gate decorations and a beauty contest are expected to attract plenty of participants.
Most notably, a workshop on improving the overall quality of flowers and ornamental trees in the Mekong Delta region will also be held during the event.
Artists from the southern region will perform cải lương (reformed opera), đờn ca tài tử (southern traditional music), and folk songs throughout the course of the festival.
Both a market on paper flowers and a flower arrangement contest are also all on the agenda.
Located by the bank of the Tien River, Sa Dec flower village in Dong Thap province is widely considered to be the kingdom of flowers in the Mekong Delta and supplies a variety of flowers to markets, especially when spring comes.
This marks the first time that the Dong Thap provincial People’s Committee will organise the function, aiming to attract large numbers of tourists to the locality.
