Under the municipal Department of Culture and Sports’ program to be held on New Year's eve at Hoan Kiem Lake, the Herbalife Nutrition Countdown Party will begin with a spectacular three-part show of a large number of singers and performers with vibrant lights and music.
The key act of the third part will be a 100-drone light show performed by illuminated, synchronised, and choreographed groups of drones that arrange themselves into various aerial formations.
The drone light show will be the first in Vietnam.
The Vietnam International Half Marathon (VIHM) will be held at 5am on January 1 and is expected to lure 5,000 Vietnamese and international athletes, in both elite and amateur categories.
The countdown party and half marathon will be aired on VTC1 channel, and livestreamed on the official fanpage and youtube of the event and webthethao.vn.
