According to Mr Nguyen Ngoc Thai, Deputy Executive Director of the Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism, this year, due to the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic plus prolonged salinity and severe floods in the Central region, the Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism is expected to organize activities to celebrate the spring of Tan Suu 2021 with a medium scale, meeting the needs of culture – entertainment of the people.
Like the past years, the Provincial Center for Culture and Cinema will coordinate with secondary and primary schools in the city to organize the Spring Melody Festival program; and call for the bonsai clubs in the whole province to participate in the exhibition of art works; at the same time, organize the art program “Celebrating the Party – the Spring”; perform calligraphy; exhibitions of art, photography and promote to celebrate Tan Suu 2021 through audio-visual media…
In addition, the local people and visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy special art shows performed by artists and performers from Sao Bien Folk Music and Dance Theater in the Welcome New Year program at April 1 Square (Tuy Hoa city). Besides, many activities of entertainment, culture, sports and tourism… serving local people and tourists will be also organized by Tuy Hoa City People’s Committee during the Tan Suu New Year’s Days 2021, such as: Spring Flower Fair, Tan Suu Spring Flower Street, “Bai choi” Art Show, Traditional Poetry Night, Traditional Dragon Boat Race, Human Chess Final Round…
In particular, after a missed promise, to be put off due to the COVID-19 epidemic, the Nguyen Tieu Poetry Association of Phu Yen province will return on the full moon night of the first lunar month of Tan Suu in the yard of Nhan Tower (Tuy Hoa city), promising to be an attractive and interesting destination for residents and visitors. “The Provincial Literature and Arts Association has been selecting good poems to publish the 2021 Nguyen Tieu Poetry volume and choosing to perform at the poetry association. Along with that, the contest “Nguyen Tieu Beauty through photos” will also be held again,” said Mr. Tran Quoc Cuong, chairman of the Provincial Association of Literature and Arts.
According to Mr Nguyen Ngoc Thai, the Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism has been actively implementing the preparation of New Year welcome activities as planned. However, the COVID-19 epidemic has been still happening very complicatedly in the world and the resurgence of a number of cases in the community in Ho Chi Minh City also has a certain impact on the situation of the country in general and Phu Yen province in particular. Therefore, ensuring the safety of the community before the COIVD-19 pandemic is very necessary and especially important. “The Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism especially pays attention to preventing and controlling the COVID-19 epidemic when organizing spring activities to celebrate Tan Suu Lunar New Year 2021. If the situation of COVID-19 epidemic in the country is complicated, it is imperative to suspend organizing activities…”, said Mr Nguyen Ngoc Thai.
In 2020, Phu Yen as well as other provinces and cities in the country have thoroughly grasped and strictly followed the directing documents of the Secretariat, the Prime Minister and the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism on stopping festive activities completely to focus on preventing COVID-19 epidemic to ensure safe conditions for the festival organizers and participants.
