Hong Kong’s Harbour Chill Carnival brings summer fun to the city

For a free relaxing and fun event, join in the activities at the Harbour Chill Carnival starting July 8.

Held over 10 days on five weekends, the Harbour Chill Carnival will be staged at the Water Sports and Recreation Precinct, HarbourChill, Wan Chai and Wan Chai Temporary Promenade with a series of exciting programmes for the public to enjoy such as street performances, music shows and X-game performances.

Each week along the Wan Chai Waterfront Promenade, street performances will showcase a special theme, from European-inspired acrobatics and juggling, Samba drumming, to kung fu and diabolo performances, as well as interactive performances such as Australian artistic gymnastics, the local lion dance, and more.

There will be an outdoor X-Games performance area where local, Mainland and Japanese BMX and skateboarders will showcase their deft tricks; the carnival will also feature local breakdancers and street dancers, including Olympic breakdancing Hong Kong team member BBOY Think, local breakdancing troupe Good Job Brother and Hong Kong’s first children’s street dance troupe Funky Heroes.

Featuring a new generation of musicians of more than 40 groups of musicians from Hong Kong, Mainland, Taiwan and overseas, there will be 20 music shows held on a water stage, each with a different theme: Asia Power, Fresh Finds, Indie Rocks, Cantopop Hits, and DJ Nights. Tickets to the music shows will be distributed free of charge on Hong Kong Tourism Board’s e-platform on June 27 and July 17 on a first-come, first-served basis.

Guests can also marvel at the A Symphony of Lights waterfront pyrotechnic night show during the ten days of the carnival.

In addition, a refreshment area with summer drinks and snacks will be available for participants to enjoy.
