Floral replenishment at Flower Show
Organised by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD), the Hong Kong Flower Show opened last Friday (March 3) featuring more than 350,000 flowers with the theme flower, the Dianthus.
To maintain the attractiveness of the floral display, the flower show replenishes displays regularly. In addition, exhibitors of different horticulture organisations will carry out the floral replenishment tomorrow (March 7) to maintain the colourful wonderland at the showground for the remaining period of the show that lasts until Sunday (March 12).
Highlights of the show include the Olympic emblem of "Five Rings", the spectacular sea of 15,000 colourful tulips, a floral wall displaying the 5th East Asian Games emblem and the displays presented by Ocean Park Hong Kong, the Institute of Horticulture (Hong Kong) and the Bureau of Urban Utilities and Landscaping of Guangzhou Municipality.
A series of fringe activities showcasing music and dance performances, horticultural talks, floral art demonstrations and fun games complement the 10-day flower show for the enjoyment of visitors.
The Hong Kong Flower Show opens from 9am to 9pm until March 12. Admission tickets to the flower show are sold at the entrance to the showground at Victoria Park throughout the show period. They are also available now until March 12 at the LCSD's District Leisure Services Offices, and venues with Leisure Link services.
