Ocean Park Wishes Everyone to have Vigorous Spirit of a Dragon Horse in the Year of the Horse through this Year’s Celebration Float starring Seadragon and Seahorses

2014-01-27

Ocean Park is once again participating in the 2014 Cathay Pacific International Chinese New Year Night Parade hosted by the Hong Kong Tourism Board. This year, Ocean Park wishes everyone to have the vigorous spirit of a dragon horse in the Year of the Horse through the “Ocean Park Underwater Fantasy” celebration float, starring the seadragon, seahorses and sawfish.

Seadragon and seahorses, together with a group of 30 children of different nationalities dressed as little starfish, dolphins and lobsters, will swim their way through the busy streets of Hong Kong to encourage both local residents and tourists from around the world to make an effort to protect the beautiful ocean.

Feel the Love at the Ocean Park Lunar Lucky Fiesta 
Ocean Park’s Lunar Lucky Fiesta will begin from the first day of the Chinese New Year. To celebrate the vitality of the Year of the Horse, Ocean Park invites the internationally renowned Xian An Zhishun Percussion Troupe to perform songs written by the "King of Drums", An Zhishun himself, in a spectacular acrobatics routine in the Fortune Laden Beats performance! Apart from the amazing drum performance, the Fusion CNY Dance Party is bound to take the festive spirit to new heights! This dance spectacular brings signature moves from the East and West together in a unique fusion of dances mimicking a horse’s movements to spark energy for the New Year! The Golden Lions Street Dance Celebration also adds a twist to the traditions by injecting modern beat and street dance steps into the traditional Chinese New Year lion dance. Don’t forget to visit the God of Fortune Palace where the God of Fortune waits to meet guests and give out lucky red packets!

The widely admired world-class aerial show “Aqua Voyage” continues to air throughout Chinese New Year. The show combines stunts, dance and acrobatics to create graceful motions as the performers challenge the limits of the human body in perfectly synchronised moves, including quadruple trapeze, aerial silk dance, the daring “Flying Fox”, and other jaw-dropping jumps and somersaults, leaving our guests with a laughter-filled Chinese New Year. 

Ocean Park has specially designed an array of romantic spots for the loved ones, including The Peach Blossom Garden, Lucky Blossom Bubble, Pony of Prosperity and the Tunnel of Love for lovers to go for a romantic stroll. Don’t forget to request a little luck in love from Yue Lao at his God of Romance Palace too!

Kids can also join the celebration by learning all about lucky pinwheels, and even make their very own to take home at the Kid’s Pinwheels Workshop at Whiskers Harbour! Together with sweet peach-themed photo spots, kids will create memories to savour year-round!
