In addition, members of the public can join the "Friends of HKCC" on site and get extra souvenirs. Other HKCC souvenir collections are also available at special prices.
Various programmes will also be held at different areas of the piazza. "Happy Together" is packed with magic, acrobatic performances, interactive theatre and a traditional Chinese puppet show to delight children.
The variety show, "Mega Fever", is a showcase of spicy African drumming, hot dances from Hawaii, Polynesia, Afro-Caribbean and Afro Brazil, amazing juggling, mysterious middle Eastern dance and a dazzling magic show.
