Lee Tung Avenue will celebrate Chinese New Year with rabbit-themed light installations and 688 traditional Chinese red lanterns, turning the 200-metre walking street into an atmospheric outdoor destination.
From 13 January to 10 April, sculptures of rabbits holding small lanterns on the nostalgic lampposts will be displayed across the shopping street. The street will be adorned with glittering sequins in gold and red, colours associated with prosperity and happiness. The lanterns will be switched on every day at 5pm to create a truly festive scene, best for photo-taking and gatherings with family and friends. In addition to 688 eye-catching traditional Chinese red lanterns, a light installation of a family of five rabbits will be available at the Central Piazza, symbolising "ng fook lam moon" (five blessings entering one’s home).
Furthermore, Lee Tung Avenue has designed a set of red envelopes. Iconic European-style terraces and vintage-style lampposts are juxtaposed with the shopping street’s signature festive elements such as begonia and traditional red lanterns. Incorporating the concept of Chinese paper cutting, the set of red envelopes is a tribute to traditional Chinese art and craftsmanship.
Additionally, Lee Tung Avenue will organise various cultural activities for the public to celebrate the festive season and immerse in traditional Chinese culture, including a sugar blowing workshop held by sugar blowing artist Clemen Lo, a paper-cutting workshop held by renowned Chinese paper-cutting artist Li Yun Xia, as well free Fai Chun written by calligrapher Adrian Lau on site for visitors.
