Firework over Victoria Harbour

1. China's National Day Celebrations 2012

Fireworks celebrating National Day drew some 250,000 locals and tourists to both sides of the Victoria Harbour on Monday night.
Starting at 9pm, the 23-minute extravaganza launched a total of 23,888 fireworks into the sky, telling the story of a young man from birth to maturity in eight scenes. The tale symbolised the growth of the nation.
The show began with simplified Chinese characters for “China” and a gold star – symbolising the national flag. Both patterns sparkled 10 times over the harbour.
Circles were also a pervasive theme, representing a full moon and the Mid-Autumn Festival that also fell on this weekend.
This year, crowds packed the lawn at the new government headquarters at Tamar, Admiralty, which offers a panorama of the harbour, as well as the usual sites such as the Cultural Centre in Tsim Sha Tsui.
The HK$6 million show costs less than last year’s, at more than HK$8 million, and is sponsored by the Association of the Hong Kong Members of Guangdong’s Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference Committees.

2. Chinese New Year Celebrations (Year of the Snake) 2013

Thousands lined both sides of iconic Victoria Harbour on Day 2 of Chinese New to witness Hong Kong ushering in the Year of the Snake with an astounding pyrotechnic display.
I decided to go up to The Victoria Peak for an aerial view of the harbour. About 200 photographers with tripod were there before I arrived, but luckily I managed to squeez myself in for a spot. The whole spectacle losted 24 minutes.

3. 2014 New Year Eve

On a cloudy night, 400,000 people gathered on both sides of the Victoria Harbour to welcome 2014.
