| December 31, 2017

Fireworks at Victoria Harbour

Organised by the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB), the Hong Kong New Year Countdown Celebrations 2018 will be launched at the Victoria Harbour on New Year’s Eve (31 December). The HKTB will provide satellite live feed of the Musical Fireworks for media organizations worldwide to broadcast the event live and celebrate the New Year with audience around the globe.

The 10-minute Musical Fireworks this year will be presented in an unprecedented scale, spanning across a 35% wider display area, and incorporating a fascinating collection of pyrotechnic, fireworks, sound and lighting effects. The numerals “2018” will be displayed on the façade of the featured landmark Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, when palettes of pyrotechnics and fireworks will be launched from barges at the Victoria Harbour, and rooftops of buildings on the Hong Kong Island. Launched at various elevations above the sea level, the stunning fireworks display is to dazzle our skyline with vibrant colours. Besides, Hong Kong’s skyline will be illuminated with “Magical Star Dusts” by using the fireworks from a European award-winning fireworks maker for the first time. The scene is inspired by dancing fairies scattering magical star dust over the iconic Victoria Harbour, signifying New Year’s blessings to the city.

To steam up the festive mood on New Year’s Eve, the Australian performing arts group “Strange Fruit” will present a spectacular performance from 10:00pm at the Tsim Sha Tsui Star Ferry Pier. The award-winning group had made appearances at various events worldwide and they will greet Hong Kong with a global debut of their brand-new performance “Deco-Sphere”. Performers will sway and dance with elegance on gigantic orbs of a 2-metre diameter on 5-metre poles, delivering an exotic feat incorporating theatrical, choreographical and circus entertainments. Members of the public will get a chance to “make a wish” upon the pyrotechnic “shooting stars” presented in four different colours, which symbolise love, health, happiness and wealth respectively. The sparkling stars will be launched every 15 minutes from 11:00pm onwards from the rooftops of five participating buildings on Hong Kong Island.
