Hong Kong will see the return of its most iconic end-of-year event — the New Year fireworks display, which will be held on December 31 for the first time in five years. The venue for the show has not yet been confirmed.

The 2024 countdown is part of the Night Vibes Hong Kong campaign, a series of activities organised to revive the city’s after-hours economy. The campaign calendar describes the show as “an outdoor countdown event… held to welcome the arrival of 2024 with dazzling fireworks”.

The SAR’s New Year fireworks display usually takes place at Victoria Harbour, but has been cancelled since 2019, first because of the social unrest in the city and subsequently due to the Covid-19 pandemic. However, there was a countdown event held at West Kowloon Cultural District to welcome 2022, and an enhanced version of the Symphony of Lights show over the harbour to ring in 2023.

Other events that were cancelled for the past few years, such as the Tai Hang Fire Dragon Dance and the National Day Fireworks, will also make a return to the city’s year-end event calendar.
