It’s been a year since the Hong Kong Flower Festival 2009 at Victoria Park, and once again the HK government is running the flower show at Victoria Park in Causeway Bay.
Here’s from the Leisure and Cultural Services Department :
The Hong Kong Flower Show is a major event organised by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department to promote horticulture and the awareness of greening. Every year, it provides a good opportunity for hundreds of thousands of local citizens and horticulture lovers all over the world to appreciate the beauty of flowers and share their experiences in the cultivation of flowers. Hong kong Flower Show 2010 will be held from 19 to 28 March 2010 at Victoria Park in Causeway Bay. Featuring "Cineraria" as its theme flower, the event will showcase this exquisite plant and a rich profusion of exquisite potted plants, beautiful floral arrangements and gorgeous landscape displays by organizations from local, the Mainland and overseas. There will also be commercial stalls selling flowers and other horticultural products.
During the show period, a rich diversity of educational and recreational fringe activities will also be organised for the enjoyment of visitors of all ages. They include student drawing competition, photo competition, exhibit competition, music and cultural performances, floral art demonstration, cooking demonstration, plant maintenance workshops, green stalls, guided visits, recreation programmes and fun games.
Shortly before Hong Kong was covered with a deadly 500 API sand storm pollution from the deserts of northern China, I made my way to the park to see what this year’s flower exhibition has to offer.
