Happy Chinese New Year: Ocean Park Hong Kong

Have you ever heard of Ocean Park Hong Kong? Me neither, but it's the largest theme park in Asia! In this Year of the Dog, Ocean Park will be celebrating Chinese New Year from February 16 to the 25th during their Lunar Lucky Fiesta extravaganza. Let's take a look at what they're up to!

  • Ocean Park has put together a carnival-themed float for the Cathay Pacific International Chinese New Year Night Parade on February 16th
    • What's the big news here? This parade will mark the first time ever that the parks' mascots, Whiskers & Friends, will appear in Chinese New Year costumes!
  • Lunar Lucky Fiesta will offer attractions and performances by the Chio-Tian Folk Drums & Arts Troupe from Taiwan, entitled Divine Drums Celebration. Sample one of their vibrant, rhythmic performances here:

  • A Nostalgic New Year Bazaar will include handmade items and a selection of street food
  • Presented by Mine Train, the popular Samsung Gear VR, VR Challenges Zone and VR Arcade will also be present during the fiesta. Check it out here:
