Street parades attract large audiences

On the afternoon of April 28, the street parades, one of the main programs at Hue Festival 2018, officially kicked off.

After the opening ceremony, domestic and international troupes started from An Dinh Palace, paraded through main streets including Nguyen Hue, Ba Trieu, Hung Vuong, Dong Da, etc. This year, with the theme “Colors of Culture,”  there are not only traditional troupes but also contemporary troupes participating in the parades.

On the parade route through main streets of Hue, the troupes stopped at some open large places and took turns to perform. Their performances attracted many locals and tourists to watch and cheer.

Street parades will take place in the afternoons from now to May 2
