The Southern Fruit Festival, organized by the theme park in collaboration with the Ho Chi Minh City Union of Friendship Organizations, the municipal Department of Tourism, and the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, concluded on a high note with an exciting fruit-arranging competition.

The event, a highlight of the festival, attracted participants from various localities, including Ben Tre, Tien Giang, and Ho Chi Minh City. A contestant from Dong Nai Province, just outside Ho Chi Minh City, impressed the judges and took home the first prize.

For over two decades, this competition has been a platform to showcase and preserve the artistic traditions of southern Vietnam. It has also become a drawcard for tourists, both local and international, who are captivated by the unique fruit sculptures on display.

One visitor, Nguyen Ba Anh from Binh Duong Province, expressed his awe at the fruit-based artworks. “I am amazed at the talent and creativity of the artisans. The sculptures are truly impressive and unlike anything I’ve ever seen before,” he said.

The competition featured 15 teams showcasing their skills and interpretations of southern Vietnam’s cultural heritage. Each team brought their own unique style and techniques, creating a diverse and captivating display of fruit art.

The Southern Fruit Festival-Suoi Tien Farm Festival 2024, running from June 1 to August 31, has once again proven to be a successful celebration of the region’s cultural and agricultural heritage, attracting visitors and showcasing the talent and creativity of local artisans.
