As the city welcomes spring, swarms of people flocked to Victoria Park to celebrate the return of the annual Hong Kong Flower Show in Causeway Bay. The event has been cancelled since 2020 due to the safety concerns over the virus.
This year’s theme was “Bliss on Bloom”, featuring 40,000 hydrangeas as the theme flower, along with some 400,000 flowers,accordingto the LCSD.
Accompanying the flowers were attractions built by several government departments and the 18 district councils, along with other organisations, including the Philippine Consulate-General and the Guangzhou local government.
The returning Hong Kong Flower Show garnered hundreds of people, including families, schools and tour groups.
The 2023 Hong Kong Flower Show started on Mar. 10 and ended on Mar. 19.
