Monthly fireworks display planned in Harbor

27 February 2024


Did you miss the fireworks display last Chinese New Year?

Don’t worry, there will be one every month, and it will be a free entertainment for all – if plans by the government to help boost Hong Kong’s tourism materialize.

Aside from the fireworks display, drone performances are expected to light up Victoria Harbor on a regular basis.

The daily multimedia light show “A Symphony of Lights”, where laser, strobe and neon lights answer each other from high up selected skyscrapers on both sides of the Harbor, will also be redesigned.

The fireworks display is considered a magnet for tourists, especially from across the border.

“During the recent Lunar New Year holiday, Hong Kong welcomed a total of 1.43 million visitors, of which approximately 1.255 million were from mainland China, surpassing the numbers from 2018,” a report in the Standard said.


All these nightly spectacles are being lined up in the upcoming government budget before the Legislative Council, which will allocate funding for different projects to different government agencies, the report said.

The nightly extravaganza is expected to be assigned to the Hong Kong Tourism Board.


The Tourism Board is also proposed to organize a number of supportive measures such as city walks and night runs, which will allow tourists to pursue in-depth travel experiences in the city, the report said.

Also envisioned in the new budget are more dining and entertainment elements along the city’s waterfront – such as food stalls and game booths on esplanades that have been expanded and lengthened over the last two years -- with the Development Bureau in charge.
