Lunar New Year Lantern Carnivals

With a longstanding history, the Lantern Festival is an important festival of China, and the lantern carnival is one of the most celebrated events of the year. To celebrate the festival, the Community Programmes Office annually organises Lunar New Year Lantern Carnivals in various districts of Hong Kong. The carnivals feature spectacular lantern displays as well as various kinds of performances. Members of the public can act like the literati of bygone days, taking part in lantern riddle games and workshops to enjoy the festive season.

Lunar New Year Thematic Lantern Display

During the Lunar New Year, lanterns are hung up high everywhere. In past years, we have organised lantern displays at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre Piazza and the West Kowloon Waterfront Promenade, filling the first month of the Chinese lunar calendar with festivities, allowing tourists to appreciate the pride in our traditional arts and crafts.
