NDO – The second Lang Son peach blossom festival kicked off on January 26 at Hung Vuong Square, Chi Lang commune in Lang Son city, northern Lang Son province.

With the theme of “Lang Son Peach Blossoms Festival – Quintessence Convergence, Spring Colour Spread”, the festival aims to promote Lang Son as the land of peach blossoms, turning them into a symbol of the province and becoming a key promotional tool for local tourism.

The highlight of the event is the display of over 700 of the most beautiful peach trees in full bloom.

Artistic performances will include Then singing, lion dances, and folk games. In addition, the festival also features performances by art troupes from China, Japan and the Republic of Korea (RoK).

On the occasion, the organising board awarded the most beautiful peach blossom prize to Cao Loc District People's Committee and Tam Thanh Ward People's Committee, Lang Son City.

Meanwhile, the organising board also honoured eight outstanding organisations and individuals of a photo and video contest on Lang Son.

The festival runs until February 14.
