Went up to the usual spot on the trails to catch the Lunar New Year fireworks over Victoria Harbour. I read that the display wouldn’t be as big as the New Year’s Eve one, and while true – there were fewer ships launching the pyrotechnics and no buildings launched any and the ICC had no graphics for most of the time – it was MUCH longer: 23 minutes vs 7 minutes. But I have a fireworks philosophy that too long and too much of the same becomes boring. It’s not like Lake Annecy’s 70 minute fireworks fest, which is choreographed to music and is seriously spectacular. After about 10 minutes watching last night’s display, I started wondering when it would end as I was getting really cold!! I thought 7 minutes would have been perfect.
Anyway, here’s 15 seconds of fireworks for your enjoyment.
