Chinese New Year Parade
Chinese New Year festivities usually kick off with the annual night parade in Tsim Sha Tsui. Featuring massive floats, costumes, acrobats, lion and dragon dances, and various performances, the parade is attended by hordes of locals and visitors who want to witness the spectacle. This year, it is the second time the parade will not commence since its inception in 1996 as it was also cancelled last year due to the city's political situation.
What to do instead: As the Spring Festival approaches, incredible CNY-themed decorations and displays have started popping up all around town, we may not see lion dances and parades, but you can still enjoy elaborate CNY displays all around town.
