Hong Kong WinterFest is the series of events sponsored by the Hong Kong Tourism Board which kick-off late November/early December and run up until the New Year’s Countdown on January 1st.
One of the highlights is the centrepiece in Central’s Statue Square, which becomes the season’s icon and is always a stunner.
Theme and commercial sponsors vary from year to year, so it’s always a very much anticipated surprise of what the current season will bring.
We have had some real dazzlers in previous years. We can all recall the 30-metre crystal beauty presented by Swarovski encrusted with over 20 million pieces of Swarovski crystals, and Tiffany’s indulgent Treasures complete with fairy-tale merry-go-rounds…
More recently Bvlgari’s Serpenti, a 50,000 LED light-art installation, was quite the sight in Statue Square…
And so every year, the landmark centerpiece is a widely anticipated event, it could be a specially commisioned piece of art, a strikingly decorated christmas tree or something or other that will certainly bring the spirit of the season to the fore.
