Hanoi Set to Celebrate 70th Liberation Day with Fireworks & More

Hanoi, the capital city of Vietnam, is set to commemorate its 70th Liberation Day on October 10th with a range of exciting events and festivities. Among them, will be a spectacular fireworks held display across the city.

In this article, we delve into the history and significance of Hanoi's Liberation Day and explore what this year's festivities have in store.

The Historical Background of Liberation Day

Hanoi's Liberation Day holds great historical significance, marking the day when the capital city was liberated from French colonial rule.

On October 10, 1954, after years of struggle and resistance, the Viet Minh forces, led by Ho Chi Minh, successfully captured Hanoi, signalling the end of French dominance in Vietnam. This pivotal moment paved the way for the reunification of North and South Vietnam and laid the foundations for the establishment of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.

Since then, October 10th has been celebrated annually as Hanoi's Liberation Day, symbolising the city's resilience, unity, and independence.

How It Will Be Celebrated This Year

This year's Capital Liberation Day celebrations in Hanoi promise an range of exciting activities for both residents and visitors to enjoy.

The festivities will kick off with a series of events organised by the local tourism industry, showcasing the vibrant culture and heritage of the capital city. 

From cultural performances and sporting events, to special exhibitions and film weeks offering insights into Hanoi's rich history and its journey towards liberation, there will be something for everyone to enjoy. 

We may be biased, but undoubtedly the highlight of the celebrations will be the fireworks display on Hanoi's Liberation Day.

Scheduled to take place at 30 locations across the city, including iconic landmarks such as Hoan Kiem Lake and Thong Nhat Park, the display will light up the night sky over the city. The displays will include both high and low-range fireworks, ensuring that every corner of the capital experiences the magic of the celebration.
