Unveiling Tet Giap Thin 2024: Nguyen Hue Flower Street Prelude

Nguyen Hue Flower Street for Tet Giap Thin 2024 with the theme "Spring of Love, Tet of Togetherness" is divided into three sections.
Nguyen Hue Flower Street makes a strong impression right from the entrance gate with majestic dragon mascots. Named "Twin Dragons Embracing the Lotus" (a pair of dragon embracing lotus), the grand gate features two dragon mascots, each with 5 dragon body segments winding along both sides of the flower street, with a length of over 100 meters and a head circumference of over 2 meters.
The dragon mascots are environmentally friendly, as over 90% of the materials used in the sculpting are bamboo and woven bamboo mats.
The dragon's mouth holds a 50cm diameter pearl made of translucent acrylic, containing lights inside. The intertwined dragon bodies form an aesthetically pleasing and airy canopy for section one.
Playful small dragons are designed alongside the symbol of the year 2024.
The scene "Dragon Boat of Spring Flowers" at the beginning of section two spans the entire width of the flower street and covers an area of up to 900 square meters. The organizers have designed a separate layout for the High-Tech Agriculture Zone located within the "Spring Flower Boat" scene.
The dragon mascots set a record for a length of over 100 meters, winding along both sides of the flower street.
Preparation work for the flower street ahead of Tet has been expedited by workers in recent days.
Each grand and minor scene is being hastily installed, promising an attractive spring landscape amidst the city.
This is the first time the golden apricot trees have appeared on the flower street. The golden apricot trees, crafted by artisans from Mai Vang Rong Viet Joint Stock Company, range in height from 1m to 3.6m with names like Mai Dai Phuc, Mai Rong Viet, Dao Truong Xuan, Dao Phuoc Loc, and Bo De Dai Cat.

The impressive scene "Supreme Thang Long" concludes the journey of exploring the flower street, covering an area of over 1,000 square meters.
The mascot of the grand scene, the whole-body dragon, lies on the ground with 4 body segments bending 5m away from the ground, constructed from steel pipes, steel belts, and steel mesh supported by 15 support pillars and a system of LED lights over 100 meters long running along the entire dragon body.
