Styling Librarian Hong Kong Chinese New Year Update

I love walking around Hong Kong and simply absorbing celebrations. This is one fantastic location if you love big events. So, we stuck around for Chinese New Year and loved all the activities that came with it, from parades, to fireworks, to lion dances, to amazing decorations, it’s simply beautiful to absorb. So, thought I’d share a few pictures and videos of the past few weeks celebrating Gung Hei Fat Choi! Happy New Year of the Horse!

Here’s some views of Chinese New Year Decorations:

At school, there was a lion dance, this happens each year, love it! Really special tradition… such talented people:

Here’s a few views of the parade in TST, Tsim Sha Tsui… there are THOUSANDS upon THOUSANDS of people who come to see this parade. This year we decided to escape the crowds by going up to the mall’s viewing area in a Starbucks. My son hung out at the window ledge (secure) and took pictures for us while we relaxed and avoided the crowd.


Here’s a few views of the fireworks: we were out on a junk boat laying down on the top of the boat watching the fireworks. The water was choppy sometimes from different boats coming close to see the fireworks. I loved watching these fireworks! First time we’ve officially gone to see fireworks, normally we watch from our apartment building through a sliver between the buildings and see a little bit. We don’t like leaving our dog alone when fireworks are going but she’s pretty calm here.

Finally, I captured multiple videos but decided to just share these three:
