The festival drew thousands of visitors, featuring a street parade, art performances, a Colour Run event, a culinary fair and an exhibition on local specialties.

On the occasion, Vietnamese Ambassador to Indonesia Pham Vinh Quang voiced his hopes to further bolster the Vietnam-Indonesia cooperation in the fields of economy, culture and tourism in the coming time.

At a working session with mayor of Denpasar Rai Dharmawijaya Mantra, the Vietnamese diplomat put forward measures to bolster cooperation, such as a photo exhibition on the 60th anniversary of the visits by late President Ho Chi Minh to Indonesia and by President Sukarno to Vietnam, activities marking the 65th founding anniversary of Vietnam-Indonesia diplomatic ties and twinning ties between Hue Ancient City and Denpasar.
