The Hong Kong Tourism Board is planning a spectacular “pyromusical” for the New Year Countdown, lighting up the sky above Victoria Harbour on December 31.



The 10-minute show of pyrotechnics set to stirring music will begin just as the clock strikes midnight and the landmark Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre will display the numerals “2019” and New Year blessings in various languages on its facade.

The celebration of light and music culminates as the “Celestial Kaleidoscope” dazzles Hong Kong with brilliant flashes of colour and morphing patterns, ending with 45 different patterns of fireworks in one minute. It’s the work of an Italian specialist, all choreographed in synchrony with the festive soundtrack, highlighted by traditional Chinese music. 

From 11pm, spectators can also make wish on the pyrotechnic shooting stars launched from the rooftops of highrise buildings around the harbour.
