Sunday in Dam Sen Park will be all about record-getting and setting. Vietnam record-holders will perform what brought them fame, and the park will put some huge record-breaking items on display.
Some 200 Vietnam record-holders will show off more than 20 acts, including playing flute with the nose, on the floating stage in the park in Ho Chi Minh city District 11.
In addition, the park will exhibit 15 new records, including Vietnam's biggest photo book, campaign medal, lantern, autograph book, folding bed, sand picture, coffee filter, tea caddy and kite.
The organization board will also introduce nine new records, while the park will bake giant pia cakes to beef up its record.
Together with Hy Lam Mon Bakery, park employees will make four 250-kilogram Mekong Delta pastries, sweet cakes from rice flour filled with green peas, salted duck eggs and durian.
Hy Lam Mon Bakery will bring the cakes to La Ma Square in the park for display and then for dinner, shared among the visitors. Besides that, the bakery will also prepare 6,000 cakes on the spot to feed visitors.
Dam Sen said the Vietnam Record-Holders Day 2006 was an ideal place for record-holders and their fans to exchange ideas and perhaps to even partner up to set some new records.
The park and Vietbooks that collects Vietnam records will organize the day.
Last year, Vietbooks honored some 550 records, including the oldest music disc, the oldest usable bicycle, the most crowded football match, the first movie star and, to top them all, the athlete who has broken more sport records than any other.
