The International Chinese New Year Night Parade is one of Hong Kong’s most anticipated annual events, with fantastic floats and spectacular performances by local and international performers welcoming Chinese New Year with a festive energy that is uniquely Hong Kong. Themed ‘Best Fortune. World Party.’, the parade will take place on Chinese New Year’s Day, sharing happiness and luck with the world with a vibrant party to welcome the Year of the Pig.
Nine magnificent floats and over 20 local and international performing groups will depart from the Hong Kong Cultural Center at 8pm and proceed along the main streets of Tsim Sha Tsui. With lots of energy and passion, international performing groups will celebrate their unique cultures and extraordinary skills with hip hop dancing, cheerleading, acrobatics and more.
