The union will kick things off on October 5 with the donation of 70 houses, symbolizing its commitment to social welfare.

On the same morning, a mass dance performance featuring the Ao Dai (traditional long dress) will take place across all 579 communes, wards, and townships.

September and October will see events dedicated to recognizing exemplary women who have made significant contributions to Ha Noi in 2024.

The "Check in Ha Noi" challenge will encourage residents and visitors to explore the city's cultural and historical landmarks while wearing the Ao Dai.

Additionally, there will be an exchange with female entrepreneurs and presentation of the "Capital's Golden Lotus" awards to honor skilled craftswomen from Hanoi's craft villages and streets.

Throughout August, women and students are encouraged to wear the Ao Dai every Monday and Friday, and during special events as well.

The Ha Noi Women's Start-up and Innovation Festival will showcase local agricultural products alongside a forum designed to engage women in shaping a peaceful and creative city.

Adding to the festive spirit, a folk dance contest is scheduled for mid-September. The grand finale will be the Ao Dai Carnival, themed "Ha Noi Women in Integration and Development," where the city will come alive with a vibrant display of fashion and cultural expression.

In addition, Ha Noi will celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Capital Liberation Day (October 10, 1954 - 2024) with fireworks at 31 locations across the city. As planned, Ha Noi will hold 31 fireworks shows simultaneously at 30 locations across the city within 15 minutes starting from 21:30 on October 9, 2024./.
