After a four-year hiatus since 2020, a Lunar New Year fireworks display once again lit up the night sky of Victoria Harbor of Hong Kong Sunday. 

The 2024 Lunar New Year Fireworks Display was held at 8 p.m. local time (1200 GMT), the second day of the Chinese Lunar New Year, over Victoria Harbor to celebrate the festive season. 

The theme for this year's fireworks display was "All trades thrive in the Dragon's Year, and China stands strong in the prosperous era." A total of 23,888 pyrotechnic shells were fired from three barges in the 23-minute extravaganza divided into eight scenes, forming shapes of gold ingots, dragon eggs and many more designs. 

Both sides of the harbor including Tsim Sha Tsui and Wan Chai were crowded with people watching fireworks. In some vantage points, people had been waiting hours before the fireworks display began.
