Chinese New Year is the city’s biggest and most colourful festival. Local villages in the Hong Kong geopark have organized grand traditional receptions to celebrate such an important event with their friends and partners. 

Hong Kong Geopark is delighted to join the villagers for the Chinese New Year Celebration. The establishment of a geopark should be based on strong community support and local involvement.  Hong Kong geopark is committed to co-manage the Hong Kong Geopark with the joint effect from the local communities.
