Members of the public enjoyed a vast Spring Lantern Carnival at Ko Shan Road Park and Ko Shan Theatre this evening (February 5), organised by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department.

The attractions included lantern quizzes, fortune-telling stalls and a variety of entertainment programmes such as Cantonese opera excerpts, traditional stage arts, dragon and lion dances, golden oldies and Chinese ethnic dance performances.

A popular spot for photo-taking was a seven-metre-high spectacular lantern inspired by traditional hexagonal Chinese pavilions conveying prosperity and happiness to Hong Kong people.

Another lantern carnival will be held tomorrow (February 6) featuring spectacular lantern displays, lantern quizzes, fortune-telling stalls, golden oldies, choral performances and Chinese ethnic dance performances. Details are as follows:
