Carnival stirs up pedestrian street in Hanoi

A street carnival was held on the walking streets around Hoan Kiem lake in Hanoi on Sunday, with thousands of on-looking Hanoians and visitors enjoying the enthusiastic displays.

This is the second time the event has been held in the Hanoi pedestrian street. 80 Vietnamese and foreign artists showed off impressive street art performances - Latin American dance, circus acts, and international music on the 2-kilometer walking street.

I'm very excited. I hope Hanoi will hold more fun festivals like this, said Pham Manh Truong, a visitor.

This year's street carnival sent a message of international integration and development from Hanoi, the city of peace.

Here are some photos by VNA from the carnival:
