1 Oct 2009 (annual)
Cost: Free
Every 1 October, a barrage of around 23,000 fireworks light up the skies over Victoria Harbour to celebrate the founding of the People's Republic of China. "Ooh" and "aaah" as loud as you can - you know it adds to the enjoyment.
Get the best views of this National Day show from the harbourside, such as Wan Chai, Causeway Bay, Central District, the Mid-levels and Tsim Sha Tsui East Promenade.

This date was first named as National Day in 1949, making this year the 60th anniversary.
