What: Lumieres Hong Kong announcement cocktail
When: May 28
Where: Victoria House
An announcement cocktail was held at Victoria House to announce Lumieres Hong Kong 2018, which will take place at the end of the year. This year’s event will include more landmarks that represent the heritage of Hong Kong, such as Kowloon Park, the newly revitalized Tai Kwun and the Fringe Club.
“The community’s response to last year’s festival was overwhelming. Over 500,000 local and overseas spectators participated in the three-day event, making it one of the top five light festivals worldwide and one of the largest in Asia. We are most honoured to have Lumieres Hong Kong return to Asia’s World City this winter to offer another cultural adventure to us and our friends from abroad to rediscover the unique beauty and cultural heritage of Hong Kong through the medium of light,” officiating guest Mr. Matthew Cheung Kin-chung GBM GBS JP said during the event.
The festival originates from the city of Lyon in France and is held in major cities around the world to celebrate the power of light installations.
Lumieres Hong Kong 2018 will run from November 29 to December 2 2018
