Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens Festival at Lee Gardens
Time Out says
The Sevens takes over Causeway Bay with the biggest party in town
Whether you've got a ticket for the rugby or not, you'd be mad to miss out on the festivites planned across 16 days at Lee Gardens.
First up, the longtime favourite Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens FanWalk returns on April 6-8 with live streaming of all the games, street performances and plenty of food and drink! On the same dates, the Wolfpack Ninjas descend on Lee Gardens with a specially created obstacle course for six-16 year olds.
For those who prefer a controller over a ball, April 3-8 is your time to shine with E-Sports tournaments being held over the course of six days with a load of popular sports games covered, including FIFA18, NBA2K18 and a drone flight simulator game from DJI.
Need a bit of relative peace from the Sevens madness? Then be sure to check out the Sevens Clubhouse from April 6-8. Seasons Restaurant is offering – along with some respite – four Carlsbergs or two Sacred Hill wines for $100. They'll also have the games live-streamed on the big screen along with live acoustic music and Q&A’s with their rugby ambassadors.
Rounding out the festivities is EGGsentially Art! Rugby Edition between March 30 and April 2 – four days of rugby clinics for the wee 'uns, cultural performances and an egglette and milk tea festival. Finally, don't miss a treasure hunt like no other with the March 24 - April 8 StreetMAZE Hunt – download the game on the HK7s app and try to find all the street that will be popping up in the area.
