Prompted by the resonating success of the fireworks displays during Mid-Autumn Festival, New Year’s Eve, and Chinese New Year, the Hong Kong Tourism Board is holding more regular pyrotechnic and drone displays over Victoria Harbour. Either fireworks or drone displays will be organised more regularly this year to coincide with major events occurring in Hong Kong and could happen more than once a month.

Get ready for the first drone show, which will debut at Wan Chai HarbourChill and the Water Sports and Recreation Precinct on 11 May, coinciding with Buddha’s Birthday celebrations and the Cheung Chau Bun Festival. In celebration of these two major holidays, onlookers will get to admire festive features such as a giant bun tower, flower board, a dancing lion, and traditional temples. Unlike fireworks, the show is not visible from across the harbour, so it’s best to get as close as possible to benefit from the full experience with music and sound effects, too. What’s more, the Hong Kong Tourism Board will be giving away free ice cream on a first-come, first-served basis, from 6 pm till 8 pm by the Wan Chai Ferry Pier. 

Next month, a drone display and a fireworks show will celebrate the Dragon Boat Festival near the Wan Chai promenade on 10 and 15 June, respectively. Details have yet to be announced regarding other big holidays and events this year.

All the shows that are planned thus far will begin at 8 pm.
