There will be 15-minute high-altitude pyrotechnics from 9 p.m. at the Thu Thiem Tunnel between Districts 1 and 2 and Dam Sen Park in District 11.

Last year authorities had scrapped the fireworks shows and all other public events as the fourth wave of coronavirus had begun. It has caused over 10.3 million infections and 42,000 deaths so far.

There will be a four-day holiday for Reunification Day and Labor Day (April 30 and May 1) since they both fall on the weekend.
