Xem anh phong to

The Hue Festival 2008 ended in a burst of colour and light with a closing ceremony of fireworks and lanterns floating on the Huong River.

The closing ceremony began with a show of 46 women modeling Vietnam’s traditional ao dai who paraded alongside visions of Hue imperial palaces, natural scenes and the beauty of Hue people projected on a large screen.

Speaking to a packed crowd gathered at the Ngo Mon Gate of the ancient citadel, Chairman of the People’s Committee of Thua Thien-Hue Province, Nguyen Ngoc Thien, said the Hue Festival has brought new vitality to Thua Thien-Hue and the former imperial capital of Hue.

The festival is a chance for Hue to prove its position as a cultural and tourist centre and a festival city of Vietnam, the chairman said.

The Hue Festival 2008 took place from June 3-11 showcasing 62 art troupes from 22 countries under the theme “Cultural Heritage with Integration and Development.”

The festival featured special art performances and traditional rituals, and attracted more than 2 million visitors, including 30,000 foreigners.
