This is a public holiday and the scope and extent of the celebrations have varied over the years including parades, flag-raising ceremonies, cultural performances, and as in the case to commemorate the 15th Anniversary, a spectacular fireworks extravaganza.

This year, rather than one big event, the celebrations will be taking place throughout the territory's 18 districts. Events to celebrate the Establishment of the HK SAR will be spreadout throughout the summer with many highlight events taking place on July 1st.

The theme for the 17th Anniversary of Establishment of the HK SAR is "Vitality. Love" and events are being organised by many community organisations.

There will be dozens of events, ranging from sketching and painting activities, football matches, skating competitions, cultural nights, dragon and lion parades, marching bands, bike races, carnivals and fairs.

The main events commemorating the 17th Anniversary this year include:

  • The Flag Raising Ceremony
  • Grand Sea, Land and Sky Parade
  • Central and Western Kick-Off celebrations

Here's more on this year's festivities.
