As part of the proposed measures in the Hong Kong budget 2024-25, the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) is set to host regular fireworks and drone displays over our famous Victoria Harbour starting May 2024. The shows will take on different themes to coincide with various festivals and major events happening in the city.

When can I watch the fireworks in Hong Kong?  

The first firework display will take place on May 1 (8pm) near the East Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade to kick off the 'Golden Week' national holiday, where many visitors from the Mainland are expected to visit the city. Following that, fireworks will take to the sky on June 15 in celebration of the Dragon Boat Festival. Both shows will start at 8pm for roughly 10 minutes at the Wan Chai Temporary Promenade.

Where to watch the fireworks in Hong Kong

The May 1 fireworks on Labour Day will launch at the East Time Sha Tsui Promenade, so it goes without saying that the best vantage point will be at the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade towards the Eastern end where there will be sound systems set up. Other vantage points include the Wan Chai harbourfront area, Wan Chai Temporary Promenade and Golden Bauhinia Square, and the East Coast Park Precinct in North Point.

Meanwhile, the fireworks on June 15 will launch at the Wan Chai harbourfront area, so get your bodies down to the Water Sports and Recreation Precinct and HarbourChill for the best seats in the house. You can also catch the fireworks from the Tsim Sha Tsui harbourfront area, including Avenue of Stars and Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade, and the East Coast Park Precinct in North Point.
