Updated at Monday, 14 May 2018, 15:24
On the occasion of the 45th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and Belgium, the event “A Touch of Belgium” took place on May 12 at Ly Thai To Square, Hanoi. The activity publicly celebrates the two countries’ fruitful friendship. As such, the day-long happening is open to the public. It features family-friendly activities, information about Belgian funded projects in Vietnam, beloved Belgian culinary products such as chocolate, fries, waffles, ice-cream, beer; and showcases the best of what Belgian contemporary culture has to offer...
2018 is also the 60th anniversary of the “Smurfs”; the blue comic strip characters originally created by the Belgian illustrator Pierre Culliford (Peyo) in 1958  have since conquered the world of animation. At the event 3 classic Smurf cartoons will be screened in English with Vietnamese subtitles. Other Smurf-related activities like coloring and drawing are offered in the two Creative Areas. They are organized in collaboration with Wallonie-Bruxelles International who is also  hosting the Heritage Exhibition on the “Smurfs” at the Imperial Citadel, Hanoi till June 4th.
Most notably, “Majoretteketet-Bruxelles” – a troop of 11 majorettes (or parade girls) – walk around the area of Ly Thai To square accompanied by a vibrant and upbeat live marching band: the Hanoi Brass Band. In Brussels, "Majoretteketet-Bruxelles" enlightens cultural events with their feminine charm, thereby engaging the audience. The group also have joint performances with the “Pinky Cheerleading Squad” of the Foreign Trade University and the children of the “Be Singer Club”.
