HỘI AN — The ancient city of Hội An will host a ‘lantern night’ in the streets of Wernigerode, its twin town, in Germany as part of cultural co-operation between the two cities from August 23-25.

Võ Phùng, director of Hội An’s Culture and Sports Centre, said that Hội An artisans will light up the old streets of Wernigerode with hand-made lanterns.

Craftspeople from Hội An will also demonstrate lantern-making skills for visitors during the three-day cultural exchange event, while chefs will offer the traditional food of Hội An.

Artists from Hội An and Wernigerode will stage a joint performance during the lantern night festival.

Last year, German singer Rainer Hochmuth and the Webster Band performed at the German Beer festival in Hội An.

Hội An, a UNESCO-recognised World Heritage city, in co-operation with Wernigerode, provided a solar-powered system for public lighting as well as loudspeakers and lanterns last year.

Hội An often hosts lantern night events during weekends. All restaurants, cafes and hotels are decorated with colourful lanterns. — VNS
