Busy market for full moon festival

(VOV) -Hanoi’s Giang Vo Exhibition Centre staged a special Mid-Autumn Festival market on September 14, offering local children the chance to enjoy a cozy atmosphere while admiring the diverse range of modern and traditional toys available to purchase.

The market, which lasts until September 22, is a joint endeavour of the Vietnam International Business Centre and the Vietnam Craft Villages’ Association.

Parts of the exhibition centre are devoted to recreating the festive environs of traditional rural markets through bamboo tents and images of banyan trees, wells, and temple grounds.

Patrons, primarily children and their parents, can join in folk games, admire music and dance performances, observe parades, and compete in cooking contests.

Famous artisans are also showing interested children how to make traditional toys and moon cakes.
