National Day fireworks display to be held at 8pm next Friday

A 23-minute fireworks display will light up Victoria Harbour on October 1 to celebrate the 55th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China. A total of 28,300 pieces of firing shells will be discharged in the display, beginning at 8pm.

The display is sponsored by the Chinese General Chamber of Commerce and coordinated by the Home Affairs Bureau.

Divided into 10 spectacular scenes, the fireworks will, for the first time, be discharged from four barges, making the display more panoramic.

Highlights of the display are the fourth, sixth and ninth scenes. The fourth scene featuring smiling-face patterns, coupled with colourful comets at low level, reminds Hong Kong people to keep smiling in all situations.

The sixth scene with firework shells bursting from water, changing colour from gold to red patterns, will create appealing visual effects.

More than 1,000 palm shells fill up the sky in the ninth scene enhanced with red heart and golden moon patterns.

The fireworks reach climax at the last scene with fast and rhythmic display of colourful patterns at different heights to create a stunning impact.

The display can be seen from many vantage points on both sides of the harbour, including Mid-levels, Central District, Wan Chai, Causeway Bay and Hung Hom Bypass. However, part of Tsim Sha Tsui East will be closed due to construction work.

To increase their enjoyment, 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. Please show consideration in order to make the event a safe one.
