     The National Day fireworks display will light up Victoria Harbour on Wednesday night (October 1) to celebrate the 59th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China. Starting at 9pm, over 23,800 firing shells will be discharged in the 23-minute display.

     The display is sponsored by the Association of Compatriots in Hong Kong for Celebration of the National Day of the People's Republic of China Limited, and coordinated by the Home Affairs Bureau.

     The fireworks display consists of eight scenes of different themes. Scene One features the Chinese characters for "China" and heart patterns in red and gold, symbolising the harmonious life of the Chinese people. In Scene Five, there will be "xiangyun" (auspicious cloud) patterns, while in Scene Six, twinkling colour strobes in red, gold, orange, green and silver celebrate the success of Beijing Olympics. The fireworks display reaches its climax in the last scene with fast and rhythmic firing of shells to create a stunning finale.

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

     To fully enjoy the display, viewers are invited to tune to Radio Television Hong Kong Radio Four (FM 97.6 - 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 be considerate in order to make the event a safe one.
