HKTB to showcase largest fireworks celebration ever on the eve of the new year

The Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) is set to host its biggest-ever New Year Countdown Celebrations, themed “New Year, New Legend,” on December 31st. The countdown fireworks display for this year guarantees to be the most extensive and longest-lasting, aiming to captivate both locals and global visitors. Dane Cheng, Executive Director, HKTB, said, “The Hong Kong New Year Countdown Celebrations is one of Asia’s most captivating countdown events, and has long been widely covered by the Mainland and international media and attracted large crowds to the performance. This year’s celebrations will be the largest that Hong Kong has ever seen on New Year’s Eve. Together with an East-meets-West musical, the performance will surely attract large crowds to enjoy the performance in person. I believe that this dazzling audiovisual extravaganza in Victoria Harbour on New Year’s Eve will boost the lively, vibrant night-time ambience across the city while showcasing Hong Kong’s unique appeal to the rest of the world.”

On New Year’s Eve, when the countdown clock strikes midnight on the wall of the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, Victoria Harbour will be transformed into a grand for the “New Year, New Legend” fireworks extravaganza. The fireworks will span from Central to North Point, covering a distance of 1,300 metres and lasting for 12 minutes. The fireworks choreography was designed by Liu Lin, Fireworks Project’s Chief and Director of Fireworks Operation of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. The performance was inspired by the changing of seasons, leading the audience on a journey from winter through spring, summer and autumn, then greet winter again as the seasons repeat in a circle of life. Liu said, “The countdown firework performance demonstrates the optimism and diligence of the people of Hong Kong, who inspire boundless vitality and innovation, and have given birth to one legend after another.” (Source HT)
