About 2006 Hong Kong WinterFest

Organised by the HKTB for the fifth consecutive year, 2006 Hong Kong WinterFest is taking place between 24 November 2006 and 1 January 2007. Hong Kong's central business district has again been transformed into a picturesque European-style Santa's Town with the "Love and Care" theme. To enrich the visitor experience, the HKTB is co-operating with four major family-friendly attractions -- Hong Kong Disneyland, Madame Tussauds Hong Kong, Ngong Ping 360 and Ocean Park Hong Kong -- to create various themed Photo-Op corners, where visitors and local residents can photograph their loved ones. Together with spectacular entertainment and colourful decorations in the vicinity, 2006 Hong Kong WinterFest once more makes this city the focus of Christmas and New Year celebrations in Asia.
