The Hong Kong Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) unveiled new displays at North District Park and Tsuen Wan Park to celebrate the Chinese Lantern Festival. The displays, which will commemorate the end of Lunar New Year celebrations, will be on view until February 7.
The theme of the displays at North District Park is “Spring is in the Air”, and they include lanterns in the shapes of flowers, animals, and insects. There will also be lanterns of LCSD mascots Enggie Pup and Artti Kitty in traditional Chinese attire.
The lanterns at Tsuen Wan Park will feature animal lanterns, as well Enggie Pup and Artti Kitty, pandas and rabbits. Visitors can also see a bridge in the park decorated with colourful balloons, as well as solve lantern riddles at different display venues.
There are several other Chinese New Year displays across the city, including the paper-lantern installations at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre Piazza, which will be lit every day between 6pm and 11pm until February 7.
