To celebrate the start of the Chinese New Year, there will be a magnificent Lunar New Year fireworks display on the second day of the Lunar New Year over the Victoria Harbour in the evening. Lunar New Year Fireworks Display in Hong Kong is an annual event since 1982.
In 1982, to celebrate its’ 150th anniversary, Jardine Matheson sponsored the first fireworks display event, and received good public response. Since then, it became an annual event of Chinese New Year as a greeting to Hong Kong citizens.
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 avoid overcrowding along the waterfronts on both sides of the harbour, a number of roads will be closed or re-routed.
