According to the organizing board, 71 artists from carnival delegations will depart from the Sea Square at the Ho Xuan Huong - Hai Ba Trung crossroad, to the stage for the opening ceremony of the 2019 Sam Son Sea Festival at the Ho Xuan Huong - Tay Son intersection.
On the route, the parade will make stops to perform on a stage at three venues, including the junctions of Hai Ba Trung - Ho Xuan Huong, Le Thanh Tong - Ho Xuan Huong and Tay Son - Ho Xuan Huong streets. The carnival shows and parades will take place from 9:30 am to 11:30 am and from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm on April 13.
