For 50 years, Harbour City’s Christmas display at Ocean Terminal main entrance has been one of Hong Kong’s must-see attractions. People have come in droves to take photographs and soak up the unique festive atmosphere. Since we experienced several waves of the Covid-19 pandemic, this year’s Christmas theme of Harbour City is “Christmas Every Day” featuring a unique “Charity Christmas Bear”, which aims to bring joy and spread love this festive season.
This year, Harbour City is moving parts of its Christmas installations from Ocean Terminal Forecourt, to more a spacious outdoor venue, Ocean Terminal Deck which transforms into a “Christmas Lighting Garden” and “Christmas Camp Fire” while the staircase entrance of Ocean Terminal becomes a “Beary Christmas Shop”.
Aside from the outdoor Christmas installations, there will be a series of different Christmas activities inside the mall across online and offline platforms. What’s more, there are 4 photo hotspots you can’t miss! Come to check out our “Beary Christmas Shop”, “Beary Fashion Store”, “Christmas Lighting Garden” & “Christmas Camp Fire”!

More Surprises! Online and Offline Christmas activities around every corner
Echoing with the theme of “Christmas Every Day” , let’s shine the spotlight on every talented and caring kid who is ready to sing with love for the people in need! This year, Harbour City has invited Dutch artist Eva Cremers to design various funny, yet adorable “Monster Members” to establish a “Christmas Club”, delivering an amusing “Christmas Performance”. We are inviting children to record their own Christmas singing performance, and will subsequently play the recordings in Harbour City and social media channels with the aims of spreading the message of love and joy so that everyone, including those unable to visit the mall in person, can enjoy the festive season.
Celebrate Christmas under new normal
Harbour City will introduce new safety measures designed to protect visitors and staff, and ensure that the public can continue to enjoy Christmas celebrations despite Covid-19. The Christmas installations coated with photocatalyst will be cleaned and sanitized regularly, and are also designed to maximize photo opportunities while minimizing human contact.
