Hong Kong celebrates 60 years of the PRC with fireworks
Tuen Mun in Hong Kong was the venue for a spectacular fireworks display on Saturday, September 19th, 2009.
In celebration of the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China. Lasting for about 20 minutes and divided into eight scenes, the colourful and specially-designed pyrotechnics display was accompanied by background music revolving around the theme, such as the national anthem, the 2009 East Asian Games theme song and the Yellow River Concerto, to present a stunning audio-visual experience for people watching.
For the first time in Hong Kong, a pyrotechnics screen 100 metres high and 600 metres wide was created off the sea with pyrotechnics discharged by one barge at the centre and three pontoons on the sides.
Special effects were choreographed to craft a spectacular impact, glittering in the sky above Tuen Mun.
Tens of thousands of people watched the display at the Tuen Mun Promenade and beaches in Tuen Mun. The public also had a fun-filled evening at a large-scale beach concert staged at Golden Beach and Cafeteria New Beach today, featuring a variety of cultural performances, such as drumming, Chinese folk dancing, Chinese traditional "changing faces" and wushu.
The best part, of course, was the fireworks.
