Ho Chi Minh City authorities have announced a plan to stage pyrotechnic shows in District 2, District 11, and Binh Thanh District to celebrate New Year, according to the Vietnam News Agency.

The plan has been approved by the municipal People’s Committee.

High-range fireworks will be set off in the entrance to the Saigon River Tunnel in District 2 and at the Landmark 81 skyscraper in Binh Thanh District, while one low-range pyrotechnic display will be staged at Dam Sen Cultural Park in District 11.

The fireworks will be displayed for 15 minutes, from 00:00 to 00:15 on January.

The Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee has also charged Vien Dong, a private company, with light decorations to celebrate New Year and Lunar New Year on such streets as Nguyen Van Troi, Nam Ky Khoi Nghia, Le Duan – Le Duan Roundabout, Nguyen Hue, Dong Khoi, and Cach Mang Thang Tam – Dan Chu Roundabout.

The illuminations will be kept between December 20 and March 20.
