As the highlight of “Hong Kong Mid-Autumn Festival”, the “Lee Kum Kee Lantern Wonderland” is entirely sponsored by Lee Kum Kee in its production cost. Its centrepiece – a record-breaking fish-shape sculpture made from over a thousand traditional Chinese lanterns – measures 37 metres long, 9.6 metres wide and 13 metres tall. The design concept was selected through a design competition organised by the HKTB in collaboration with Hong Kong Ambassadors of Design, Hong Kong Designers Association and Hong Kong Institute of Architects, and is inspired by the traditional goldfish lantern.
The lively fish suggests that Hong Kong, as vibrant Asia’s World City, offers myriads world-class dining and entertainment experiences to visitors.
