Fireworks will light up the sky at six locations in the capital city of Ha Noi on the night of October 10 to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the capital city’s liberation.

The shows are scheduled to run for 15 minutes, from 9 pm to 9:15 pm.

Seven high-range firework displays will take place at six places, including Ha Noi Moi Newspaper’s headquarters in Hoan Kiem District, Lac Long Quan Flower Garden in Tay Ho District, the Formula One (F1) racetrack in Nam Tu Liem District, Thong Nhat Park in Hai Ba Trung District, Van Quan Lake in Ha Dong District, and Son Tay Old Citadel in Son Tay Town.

An estimated 4,200 high-range fireworks and 630 low-range fireworks will be launched.

The fireworks are estimated to cost more than VND9.9 billion (US$389,073) to be sourced from the city budget.

The Ha Noi People’s Committee assigned the Ha Noi Capital Command to work with the concerned agencies to ensure the transport of fireworks and equipment.

The Ha Noi Party Committee has asked relevant agencies and local authorities to closely coordinate fireworks plans, ensure security, order and traffic safety during the fireworks, and guarantee absolute safety for people before and after the event.

Earlier, to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Ha Noi's Liberation Day (October 10, 1954-2024), many events and cultural and sports activities will be organized throughout the city and the country.
