This year, in conjunction with Ocean Park’s 40th anniversary and the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region’s (HKSAR) 20th anniversary, Ocean Park will host a ‘Giant Panda Birthday Celebratory Party’, and invite Hong Kong people to ‘Get Their PANDAS On!’ at the Party, where a series of giant-panda-themed showpieces and 24 newly designed giant panda graphic T-shirts will be showcased at the debut launch. One of the highlights of this Party is the inaugural ’Made in Hong Kong’ Giant Panda T-shirt Design Competition, in which Hong Kong people are invited to submit creative T-shirt design entries to commemorate this occasion.
