National Day fireworks display to be held at 9pm on October 1
**************************************************

     The National Day fireworks display will light up Victoria Harbour on October 1 to celebrate the 63rd anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China. Starting at 9pm, 23,888 firing shells will be discharged in the 23-minute display.

     The display is sponsored by the Association of the Hong Kong Members of Guangdong's Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference Committees Limited and co-ordinated by the Home Affairs Bureau.

     The fireworks display will consist of eight scenes in different themes. In the first scene, the Chinese characters for "China" and five golden stars will light up the sky. In scene five, a colourful display of chrysanthemums in round shapes symbolises the happiness of the Mid-Autumn Festival and National Day celebration. The fireworks display will reach its climax in the last scene with fast and rhythmic firing of shells for 30 seconds in gorgeous colours of red, yellow and purple.

     The display can be seen from many vantage points on both sides of the harbour, including Tsim Sha Tsui, the Mid-levels, Central District, Wan Chai, Causeway Bay and the Hung Hom Bypass.

     To make the display even more enjoyable, viewers are invited to tune in to Radio Television Hong Kong Radio Four (FM 97.6 to 98.9) for synchronised music.

     People are urged to help keep public areas clean and to show respect for public property. They are also urged to show consideration in order to make the event a safe one.
