The festival included various activities such as face painting, balloon art, circus acts, clowns, magic shows and art performance. On this occasion, children and their parents enjoyed folk games and looked back on memories of their childhood in the homeland.
In addition, more than 50 students who have gained good achievements in study and other areas were presented Certificates of Merit from the Vietnamese Embassy in Hungary. Apart from that, every child at the event was presented a gift and a lantern.
The event was ended with a lantern procession, lion dance and fireworks display in the sky of Budapest, with Vietnamese music of familiar Mid-Autumn songs./.
