About Chinese New Year Parade Hong Kong
Chinese New Year Parade Hong Kong is the highlight of Chinese New Year celebrations in Hong Kong. It is an annual event organized by the Hong Kong Tourism Board. There are nicely decorated floats as well as brilliant international and local performing groups, which let oversea tourists and Hongkongers celebrate the New Year in a wonderful street carnival atmosphere! Every year, Hong Kong Chinese New Year Parade attracts hundreds of thousands of people to come.
Chinese New Year Parade Hong Kong was first held in 1996. The Parade was elected as one the world’s most admired entertainment events in 2007 by the “Lonely Planet”, one of the world’s leading independent travel books. The Parade has become a focus of global Chinese New Year celebrations.
In early years, Hong Kong Lunar New Year Parade was held in East Tsim Sha Tsui in the afternoon of the New Year’s Day. Later, the venue was changed to the Tamar and North Wan Chai and then in Tsim Sha Tsui. In order to attract more tourists, the Parade has been held in the evening since 2004. Since then, lighting has been added to the floats so as to enhance the visual effect.
After years of development, Hong Kong CNY Parade has become a world-class event, in parallel with the Lunar New Year fireworks display and other events, making Hong Kong a global focus of celebration for the Chinese New Year.
