The word for “eight” (八 Pinyin: bā / cantonese baat) sounds similar to the word which means “prosper” or “wealth” (發 – often paired with “發財” during Chinese New Years.

Hong Kong CNY Fireworks Avenue of Stars is the best place to see fireworks with the city backdrop. For the next 3 years until 2018 it will be an even harder to get to location as construction has closed the Avenue of Stars.
Fireworks displays in Hong Kong are legendary, breathtaking shows of pyrotechnics that light up the Hong Kong skyline over beautiful Victoria Harbour. Chinese New Year fireworks are held on the 2nd night of New Year.
Hong Kong Skylines is a breathtaking most of the year but at festive times of the year they turn it up a notch or two. Christmas is celebrated with neon and bright lights as well as some undefinable X-mas decorations that are truly HK unique. Fireworks are part of bringing in the New Year in Hong Kong as with most cities around the world. Chinese New Year has become the most dependable display as the celebrations of China Day, October 1st, in both 2013 and 2014 where both cancelled for very different reasons. Based on trends we can expect the next July 1st firework display to be held in 2017.
