Co-ordinated by the Home Affairs Bureau, the 23-minute show will start at 8pm, and consist of eight scenes.
 
Highlights include a fiery symbol of “8”, to wish people good fortune and prosperity.
 
To ring in the Year of the Snake, the display will also feature a snake scene symbolising good luck for the people.


Another scene will feature the popular Korean song Gangnam Style and an animated graphic of the horse dance, made famous in the song's video, will be projected by laser on to the Cultural Centre's wall, showcasing Hong Kong's love of horse racing.
