Bright Skies Ahead
Dubbed as the one of the world’s most spectacular light shows, the marvelous “A Symphony of Lights” nightly light show along Victoria Harbour will be further enhanced this Christmas and New Year. The additional skyscrapers participating in the coordinated production and pyrotechnics from building rooftops adding highlights to the show on selected evenings will usher in the holiday season.

The “XTree” by France’s 1024 Architecture is made with lit-up metallic scaffoldings that represent branches, and augmented by strategically placed light decorations that dance to a matching soundtrack.
