Experience the Magic: Hong Kong WinterFest Lights Up the Holiday Season

Waves of Surprises during Christmas Holiday

Hong Kong WinterFest, organized by the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB), is set to rock the Christmas holiday with a wave of exciting events. The four-day extravaganza promises a diverse range of live performances at Christmas Town, along with a spectacular pyrotechnic display at the Winter Harbourfront. Get ready to immerse yourself in the festive spirit and make this Christmas one to remember.

Visitors to Christmas Town will be greeted by a magnificent 20-meter giant Christmas tree, illuminating Victoria Harbour with its colorful lights. Capture precious moments with your loved ones as you pose for photos under this stunning centerpiece. The festivities continue with a variety of live performances, including Christmas carol singing, dance shows, and instrumental music. The Christmas Town will be pulsating with a festive atmosphere, inviting visitors to dance the night away. Don’t miss the chance to meet and greet festive characters who will be spreading joy and cheer throughout the event. Look out for Christmas elves, reindeers, and even Santa himself at the gift-box-shaped Christmas hut.

For a sensory feast, make sure to catch the “Winter Harbourfront Pyrotechnics” taking place at Victoria Harbour. Running for approximately 10 minutes on four consecutive evenings, this dazzling pyrotechnic display will shower the audience with brilliant sparkles and festive icons, creating a spectacle to celebrate the holiday season. Head to the waterfront promenade in West Kowloon Cultural District with your loved ones and witness the joyous festivity unfold before your eyes. The iconic “HK” monogram, which captivated audiences during the “Harbour Chill Carnival,” will make a comeback, adding to the festive ambiance and building anticipation for the New Year countdown firework musical displays.

In the spirit of giving, the HKTB celebrated an early Christmas with sponsored children and families from Po Leung Kuk. The group embarked on a heartwarming visit to Christmas Town, where they marveled at the grandeur and size of the giant Christmas tree. Excited children had the opportunity to meet Santa and even gave him warm hugs, cherishing the magical moment. The festivities continued with a delightful dinner and the exchange of Christmas presents, including a coloring postcard of Christmas Town. The children were encouraged to share the warm festive blessings by sending their colored postcards to classmates, spreading the joy and love of the season.

The WinterFest not only aims to create a memorable experience for visitors but also to promote the city’s scenic spots and the festive hotspots that make Hong Kong a must-visit destination during the holiday season. The HKTB hopes that this celebration of love and warmth will inspire the public to explore the city’s charm and embrace the festive spirit that permeates every corner of Hong Kong.

This Christmas, let Hong Kong WinterFest be your gateway to an enchanting and joy-filled holiday season.
