The New World Harbour Race 2023, which will be held on November 12, will also host a harbourside playpark for the first time in the history of the event. The park will feature six attractions at the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade, east of the Avenue of Stars.
The design of the park is inspired by the iconic race and views of Victoria Harbour, and will be spread across two floats. The highlights include attractions such as Harbour on the Roll, Harbour Bounce, and the Joyful #PowerUp Floaties Pool, which will have trampolines, slides, and a pool-inspired ball pit.
There will also be a 10-metre-long installation suspended in the air called ‘The Wondering Swimmer’, as well as several other IG-worthy spots like the ‘New World Harbour Race Mega Buoy’ and the ‘Infinity Swings’.
Visitors who wish to enter the harbourside playpark must register by 11.59pm on October 29. The park will be open between 9am and 4.45pm and each play session will be 45 minutes long. Only children aged six years old and above are allowed to enter, and those under 14 must be accompanied by an adult. Those who successfully register are advised to wear comfortable attire and wear sports shoes and socks.
If the number of registration entries exceeds the limit, the event organisers will conduct a ballot and notify the selected individuals by email before November 6. All visitors must be at the venue 15 minutes before the start of their scheduled session.
