Hongkongers are in for a treat here! On top of the return of the Carnival, Central Harbourfront is also welcoming The Great Circus of Europe, featuring world-class circus acts and showstopping spectacles. More than 25 international performers from countries such as England, Kenya and Mexico are in town to dazzle audiences with their juggling skills, gravity-defying acts and the main attraction: motorbike performances in the wheel of death (pictured). And who can forget clowns – especially after It? Experience all the best entertainment under one roof – or circus tent.
