Ocean Park Lucky Lunar Fiesta Ushers in Vibrant Year of the Goat
From 19 February to 1 March, Ocean Park Lucky Lunar Fiesta will present guests with extraordinary sights and sounds. To kick off the New Year, Ocean Park specially invited national-class performers from Sichuan for the dynamic Face Changing Fortune Beats in front of a giant Chinese opera headdress at Waterfront Plaza. The show is highlighted by rousing percussion and drumming performances, followed by stunning face changing and fire-breathing tricks by oversized puppets. Also featured will be Bamboo Jam, an acrobatic show that promises to send the Chinese New Year spirit to a fevered pitch. After enjoying the lively performances, guests can visit Garden of Prosperity for a stroll amidst unique pillars with goat decorations and archways with Chinese opera hat-shaped décor. Guests would not want to miss photo opportunities with goat motifs and receive red packets from the God of Fortune. Old Hong Kong will play host to the awe-inspiring Kinetic Kung Fu Show, while Leaping Lions will be staged at various corners of the Waterfront.

Millions of eco-friendly LEDs inside the 13,000-square-foot Applause Pavilion will feature peach blossoms and golden dragon designs to complement the Chinese New Year. Guests can look forward to a plethora of photo opportunities with friends and family under the festive glow of Ocean Park’s iconic attractions, including the Grand Aquarium, the Ferris Wheel, and the Cable Car, as well as over 50 glittering animal ambassadors.

A lively and festive atmosphere will fill every corner of the Summit. Guests can visit the Lucky Lunar Wind Wheels to boost their fortune and catch exciting performances such as the Dazzling Dragon Dances, Roaming Lions and New Year Dancing Sparks for a vibrant start to the Year of the Goat. There will also be photo opportunities with “fai chuns” and fire crackers throughout for guests to capture happy moments.

At Whiskers Harbour, kids can create their own paintings by stamping peach blossoms using recycled plastic bottles and write down Chinese New Year wishes to take home.
