West Kowloon Art District will launch a new annual family event called WestK FunFest at the indoor and outdoor spaces around the Art Park, Freespace, and the Xiqu Centre, from March 16-April 7. The highlight of the three-week festival will be Colossal, a collection of gigantic rainbow-hued bubbles at the Art Park, as part of an award-winning exhibition called ‘Ephemeral’.

WestK FunFest will have more than 150 free and ticketed events by local and international artists. The main attraction, the large-scale immersive art installation ‘Ephemeral’, will be along the Waterfront Promenade, where there will also be pop-up performances. There will also be an interactive multimedia children’s theatre called ZOOOM, alongside Little Thai Forever, a performance inspired by the lives of the Thai community in Kowloon City.
