Arts in the Park Mardi Gras

You don’t have to be a kid to enjoy the Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation’s annual extravaganza, the Arts in the Park Mardi Gras.

This youth education programme, which uses creative arts to inspire Hong Kong’s next generation, runs for six months, culminating with a huge two-day carnival in November. 

Head to Victoria Park in Causeway Bay to see a weekend of dance, musical performances, acrobatics, theatre, and the climax of the Mardi Gras—an illuminated night parade.

The Night Parade, which was inspired by large-scale events like Notting Hill’s Carnival and Brazil’s Carnival, includes giant puppets, some more than 20 feet tall, being carried through Victoria Park.

A number of youth groups will be on stage throughout the weekend, showcasing their talent in more than 16 hours of live performances. 

Attendance is free, and there are lots of booths where you can try your hand at making masks and puppets, letting you explore your own creative side.
