  Hong Kong Flower Show

The Hong Kong Flower Show, held at Victoria Park from March 5 to 14, was a resounding success, attracting a record attendance of over 555,000. The theme for this year's show was 'Pansy Fantasia'. Apart from over 60 species and cultivars of pansies and other exotic flowers and plants from all over the world, visitors were treated to magnificent floral art displays by horticultural groups from Hong Kong, the Mainland and overseas. In all, there was participation from over 180 horticultural organisations, private firms and government departments from the Mainland, Australia, Canada, Finland, France, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, the Netherlands, Norway, the Philippines, Singapore, South Africa, Thailand, the UK and the US.

In addition to major attractions such as landscape features, floral arrangements, potted plants and bonsai displays, the show also provided a wide range of educational and recreational fringe activities. These included horticultural talks, demonstrations of flower arranging, musical performances, cultural presentations, exhibits, drawing and photo competitions, plant-care workshops and guided visits to promote interest in horticulture and the greening of Hong Kong. The State Ministry of Construction also staged an exhibition of Chinese landscapes and scenic spots.
