Every Christmas Santa Claus rides in his sleigh, bringing gifts to all around the world. This year Santa has chosen to take a journey on his Christmas train to Hong Kong, and meet all of us at Harbour City from 7 November 2014 to 4 January 2015. On the other hand, Harbour City has raised funds for the Hong Kong Blood Cancer Foundation for consecutive 13 years since 2002. This Christmas, Harbour City features “Shaun the Sheep” as the theme for different Christmas scenes at Gateway Arcade and Kids Zone on Ground Floor of Ocean Terminal in December 2014. Together with the charity sale of limited edition 2015 “Shaun the Sheep” desktop calendar, you can enjoy a warm and memorable Starry Christmas at Harbour City!
Harbour City “Christmas Train Station”
“Starry Christmas” is the main theme of Harbour City this Christmas. The Ocean Terminal Forecourt of Harbour City will transform into a Christmas train station with red, white and gold as the main colours.
A 30-meter long “Starry Christmas Train” with giant steam locomotive funnel releasing countless Christmas stars will stop at the station. There will be also special lighting effects at night to create a romantic ambience.
The other 2 carriages will display a Snowman, Teddy bear, and Christmas ball, all standing at 3 meters tall. By donating HK$20 to the Hong Kong Blood Cancer Foundation, you will be able to board the train and enjoy the full experience of this magical ride.
The train station in the Ocean Terminal Forecourt and the staircases of the Ocean Terminal Main Entrance have also opened many “shop fronts”. The opposite side of the station features 4 crafted large window fronts with different themes, including ferris wheel, Teddy bear, ice mountain and fashion. Public can have chance to take photo inside the fashion window front and act as top models.
The staircase ceiling will be fully covered with giant hexagonal stars and star-shaped lights. Over 10 pieces of shining star frames with different sizes would be also hung up in the ceiling, which creates a giant 3-dimensional Christmas star in the sky.
Walking from the train station to the Ocean Terminal Lobby, you will see a 6 meter tall European Christmas tree. Every place at the Harbour City “Christmas Train Station” is destined to be a popular photo taking spot that will capture the memorable moments of you and your loved ones.
“Shaun the Sheep Love Christmas” @ Harbour City
Harbour City brings British animation character “Shaun the Sheep” to Hong Kong to celebrate Christmas with all of us by using “Shaun the Sheep Love Christmas” as the theme. 30 figurines of Shaun dressed up in different colours will be displayed at the big barn in Gateway Arcade of Harbour City.
The Kids Zone on the Ground Floor of Ocean Terminal will be transformed to the funny playground of “Shaun the Sheep”, and display 30 pieces of Shaun Charity Christmas ornaments sponsored by various Harbour City tenants, organisations and donors. “Shaun the Sheep Love Christmas” will surely bring everyone a happy Christmas filled with joy and festive fun.
