In recent years, Halloween Festival has been eagerly awaited by young people. This is an occasion to attract a great deal of students taking part in diverse activities such as carnival, recreational games, and contests. This year Halloween Festival taking place in October 31st aims to convey people a message "Safety is the first priority" and urge traffic participants to obey the law with an objective of reducing traffic accidents. With many thrilling and macabre activities, Halloween Festival 2014 promises to bring its attendance a meaningful and surprising day.
Main activities in the festival include a parade on the streets of Hanoi, an exhibition of antique and exclusive vehicles, a devil's fair, the decoration of haunted house and graveyard, an exhibition "the way of devil", DJ and Halloween fashion show. The highlight of Halloween Festival in Hanoi 2014 is an exhibition with a subject "The way of the devil". The exhibition takes the inspiration from an idea of reconstructing the scenes of a horrific accident with the image of devastated and mournful scenes in walkways of Ho Tay Park combining with eerie lighting effects following Halloween style.
The organizing committee of Halloween Festival 2014 said that the festival will create a playground in which anyone can participate and immerse in cultural flows brought by the festival. The festival will create the interaction for all people attending through a series of interconnected events from 8.00 am to 10.00 pm in Halloween day. This is the second time Halloween Festival organized in Ho Tay Park by the co-operation between Ho Tay Park and HeartLink JSC with an objective of bringing a useful and fun playground for Hanoi youths and a great opportunity for them to be creative and especially understand the special meanings of the festival.
Following the success and inheriting experiences of previous years, the organizing committee of Halloween Festival 2014 hopes to create a bigger playground with the larger scale and attract a larger number of attendances. Especially, after this event, the organizing committee will make a charitable program to give gifts for poor families and people in remote and mountainous areas of Quang Tri Province. The trip is expected to take place in November 2014.
