Lunar New Year fireworks display to be held at 8 pm this Sunday


The Lunar New Year fireworks display will light up the sky of Victoria Harbour at 8 pm this Sunday (February 2). The 23-minute show will be divided into eight scenes, displaying 30,000 pieces of firing shells from one large barge accompanied by eight pontoons, four on each side.

The fireworks display is sponsored by the Four Seas Group and coordinated by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department. The total sponsorship amount is four million. On this year's special attraction, the fourth scene will be cheerful with patterns of "smiling faces" and "McMug's lovely noses" while the fifth scene will discharge the Chinese lucky number "8" in red color. The fireworks reach climax at the last scene with fast and rhythmic display of red lanterns, brocade crowns, peonies and salutes to create a stunning impact.

Members of the public can view the spectacular display from the vantage points on both sides of the harbour such as the Mid-levels, Central District, Wan Chai, Causeway Bay and Hung Hom. Due to the construction work at Tsimshatsui East, part of the Tsimshatsui East will be closed as restricted area.

Members of the public can listen to the synchronised music broadcast through RTHK Radio 4 to enjoy the audio and visual spectacular.

At the Golden Bauhinia Square outside the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre in Wan Chai and the Hong Kong Cultural Centre Piazza in Tsimshatsui, there will be synchronised music to enhance the enjoyment of the spectacular display.

The public is urged to help keep the public areas clean and care for public properties. As the Kowloon Public Pier and Queen's Public Pier will be very crowded, marine vessel operators are recommended to use other public piers.
