Lunar New Year fireworks display to be held at 8pm on February 19
******************************************************

The Lunar New Year fireworks display, sponsored by the Association of the Hong Kong Members of Guangdong's Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference Committees Limited and co-ordinated by the Home Affairs Bureau, will light up the sky over Victoria Harbour at 8pm next Monday (February 19).

More than 23,800 pieces of firing shells will be discharged in the display from three barges in a 23-minute extravaganza consisting of 12 scenes. The sponsorship amount is $4 million.

The display opens with the red Chinese character "ji" meaning "luck" in the first scene. The character "8" and gold ingot- shaped display in the third scene symbolises a prosperous year ahead, followed by faces of the pigs and smileys in the fourth scene. The fireworks reach a climax in the last scene with a fast and rhythmic display to create a stunning impact.

The display can be seen from many vantage points on both sides of the harbour, including Tsim Sha Tsui, Mid-levels, Central District, Wan Chai, Causeway Bay and Hung Hom Bypass.

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. They should also show consideration in order to make the event a safe one.
