“Christmas Together” At Harbour City, Hong Kong

Harbour City’s annual outdoor Christmas lighting display is one of the Hong Kong’s must-see attractions and the classic gathering place for locals and tourists to celebrate Christmas with their family and friends together. This year marks the 50th anniversary of Harbour City. Hence Harbour City has set up outdoor Christmas lighting display and launched an online campaign with the theme of “Christmas Together” this year and invites everyone to bring their family and friends to enjoy the festive season together in Harbour City!

 Christmas at Harbour City this year brings a warm and lovely little snowman, called “Snowie” to celebrate Christmas with family and friends. Ocean Terminal will be transformed into the “Christmas Party of Snowie” from November 11, 2016 to January 2, 2017. Although there is no white Christmas in Hong Kong, you can still find your own “Snowie” in Harbour City, together with your family and friends to have a warm and happy Christmas! Moreover, Harbour City has raised funds for the “Hong Kong Blood Cancer Foundation” for 15 consecutive years since 2002. Harbour City proudly invites the Finnish illustrator Rami Niemi from the hometown of Santa Claus, Finland, to create the unprecedented designs of Santa Claus and Christmas decoration at Gateway Arcade and on Ground Floor of Ocean Terminal from December 2016.

 1. Christmas Party of Snowie

This year, Harbour City invites you to join the “Christmas Party of Snowie” from November 10, 2016 to January 2, 2017 to celebrate Christmas together with your loved ones at the Ocean Terminal Forecourt of Harbour City. “Snowie” is a combination of two big snowballs with 32 different designs in colors and patterns. More than 150 large and small Snowie in different designs are joining the Christmas Party, each design is hidden with a "Secret Code" from 0 to 31. You can find the designated snowie and take photos to create your own “Snowie code”. In the center of the forecourt, there will be a stunning 12-meter-tall Christmas tree made from different sized Snowie; also you can find a large carousel and a specially designed Christmas light tree to create a warm and delightful ambience. Christmas pigeons also bring various blessings from all over the world to Harbour City’s Snowie and you can see the messages on their “neck cushion”. Come and make your own “Snowie code” to your loved ones!

 The party of Snowie will also be extended from the forecourt to the staircases of the Ocean Terminal main entrance. A few pairs of Snowie are happily seated on the flying swing at the ceiling of the staircase and enjoying the Christmas scene of Victoria Harbour and Harbour City. Both sides of the staircases are covered with different shapes of lamps and fun mirrors to create a dreamy and festive ambience.

2. “Throwback Christmas Memories”

Harbour City’s outdoor Christmas decoration is the top “check-in” location every year. Ocean Terminal already has 50 years of history, and this year we also hit the trend by organizing a “crowdfunding” event to gather photos from online. We hope that through the power of the Internet, we can collect old Harbour City Christmas photos from past years in order to complete Harbour City’s half a century photo album. You can upload your #Throwbackxmas @Harbourcity photos to our online album (, from November 10 to December 31, 2016 and we will reward the best photos submitted each week. After the collecting event, the selected “best photos from the past 50 years” will be used to create a limited edition Harbour City’s Christmas album to raise funds for Hong Kong Blood Cancer Foundation.

3. “Santa is Everywhere”

Finland is the hometown of Santa Claus. Harbour City collaborates with the Finnish illustrator Rami Niemi this year to use "Santa is Everywhere" as the theme of the indoor Christmas decorations of Harbour City and created a series of modern Santa Claus which are different from the traditional image.

 Rami believes that Santa Claus in 2016 can wear a suit or shorts, use e-mail to receive the wishes of the children, then send the gifts by courier. Rami Niemi also designed a Christmas deer rocket placed in Gateway Arcade of Harbour City to bring you a Christmas filled with fun and joy! Rami will visit Hong Kong for the first time from November 29 to December 4 to attend the opening ceremony of "Santa is Everywhere". Media interviews can be arranged in advance.

4. Limited Edition “Dream Big Fly High” 2017 Desktop Calendar

Harbour City will launch a limited edition "Dream Big Fly High" 2017 desktop calendar. The design of the calendar is created by Finnish illustrator Rami Niemi, who specially designed cartoon characters representing different inspirations of dreams for each month, like "Courage" for January and "Faith" for February. Rami hopes everyone can have these positive energies throughout the whole year. The calendar will also come with 6 small balloons which encourage everyone to dream big and fly high in the New Year! All proceeds of the charity sale will be donated to the Hong Kong Blood Cancer Foundation for those in need. This Christmas gift will not only be perfect for your personal use, but also for friends and family.
