Bitexco Group prepares for fireworks night in HCMC to celebrate 40 years of Vietnam's reunification on April 30.
The Bitexco Group will sponsor a fireworks and light show on the night of April 30, Reunification Day, at Bitexco Financial Tower on Nguyen Hue in Ho Chi Minh City.
The Group has cooperated with the Hoa Chat 21 Co. and French subcontractors Ruggieri to complete installations in the tower and surrounding areas for the fireworks. The time has been changed from 10pm to 9.45pm.
The music for the show has been arranged by French specialists based on the theme of “The country full of joy”, while sound systems have been placed in two zones: along Ton Duc Thang Street, with eight speakers, and at Ben Thanh Market, with five speakers.
The organizer has suggested that the best views can be had in buildings or areas in District 2 between Thu Thiem Tunnel and Thu Thiem Bridge, Mai Chi Tho Boulevard, and 23/9 Square, in front of Ben Thanh Market, and Calmet Bridge between District 1 and District 4.
With the fireworks installation in a high position in the Tower, the Bitexco Group expects more viewers to be in surrounding districts, reducing traffic congestion in the center of the city. The Group has also asked people to protect the environment by collecting their rubbish and keeping the area where they watch the fireworks clean.
To ensure safety in the fireworks area, business activities on the 52nd floor of the Tower will be suspended all day on April 30. Other areas of the building will be sealed off from 7pm while parking on roads around the building, such as Ngo Duc Ke, Ho Tung Mau, and Hai Trieu, is not permitted from April 22 to the end of the fireworks night.
