For the first time in seven years, Lee Tung Avenue in Wan Chai will again hold its “Chinese New Year Parade” on Feb. 12, or the third year of the Year of the Dragon, from 5:30pm to 7pm.

Two international performing groups which will take part in the Cathay International Chinese New Year Parade in Tsim Sha Tsui on the evening of Feb. 10, the first day of the Lunar New Year, will be showcased in Lee Tung Avenue’s post-parade show.


The first team, Golden Dream, is a 10-member dance troupe from Spain that has won numerous awards in the Carnival Torrevieja in Spain and Festival di Sanremo in Italy. The performers will turn the temperature up with their colourful and lavish outfits and passionate dancing.

The other team, Universe of Lights from Germany, is made up of eight stilt-walkers who will surely amaze everyone with their enchanting movements and out-of this-world costumes.

They will be given support by dancers from the Jean M. Wong School of Ballet and SDM Jazz & Ballet Academie, who will present a playful Lunar New Year-themed performance with Chinese elements.

The “God of Fortune” will also be present to distribute candies and offer his blessings as well as photo opportunities.

The show is open to the public but those who want to enjoy it away from the crowds can watch at leisure from the alfresco dining areas or balconies of any of the restaurants along Lee Tung Avenue, which is bounded on one end by Queen’s Road East and the other on Johnston Road.

Also as part of its Lunar New Year celebrations, Lee Tung Avenue will host a lion dance show, and a lion dance experience workshop with a professional instructor, on the first two days of the new year, Feb. 10 and 11.

The lion dance performances will be held in four sessions on both days: from 1 to 1:15pm, 2:15 to 2:30pm, 5 to 5:15pm, and 6:15 to 6:30pm.


The workshops will be conducted 10 minutes after each performance, and will last for about 30 minutes. Those who wish to join the workshops must register beforehand and comply with a minimum spending requirement at the venue.

Those who missed the performances on these two days can look forward an even bigger show, the Dragon & Lion Dance Spectacular, a Lee Tung traditional offer, which will be held on Feb 20, from 2 to 2:30pm.


The breath-taking performances will include high pole jumping as well as a boisterous and colourful procession featuring a giant golden dragon.
