Vibrant HK scenes appear in New York Times Square ahead of New Year's Eve Countdown

Iconic scenes of Hong Kong lit up the giant screen at New York Times Square on Sunday ahead of its New Year's Eve Countdown. The video launch is also a prelude to the upcoming countdown performance by Hong Kong artists on December 31.
The video, under the theme "Fusion, Motion, Inspiration - Hong Kong Rocks!", showcases the energy, diversity and vibrancy of the city and invites Americans to rediscover the excitement and unique beauty of Hong Kong.

Performing arts group TS Crew, world champion harmonica player CY Leo, and erhu virtuoso Chan Pik-sum will kick off this year's countdown celebration at New York Times Square with a live performance against a brand new medley arranged by legendary jazz pianist and composer Ted Lo.

The event will also give the audience limited-edition scarves designed by Hong Kong's iconic fashion designer Vivienne Tam.

Candy Nip Kai-yan, director of the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in New York, said she was thrilled to present this exhilarating performance to the audience at New York Times Square and millions more nationwide and around the globe through live broadcast and webcast.

She also thanked the Sino-American Friendship Association for this fantastic opportunity to promote cultural exchanges between Hong Kong and the United States. She hopes people will join in and welcome the New Year with Hong Kong.

The countdown event will be live broadcast or webcast at https://livestream.com/2023.
