31st January 2024 – (Hong Kong) West Kowloon Cultural District (WKCD) invites visitors to embark on a romantic journey filled with shimmering lights in the Art Park from the 3rd to the 25th of February 2024. The much-anticipated event, WestK Nightscapes – Love & Lights, will showcase an array of captivating light installations, offering a truly enchanting experience for all.

One of the highlights is the WestK Lightscapes, featuring a heart-warming Neon-light Art Installation by @streetsignhk, a local architect duo known for their innovative designs. This mesmerising sculpture, composed of neon tubes that glow in all directions, transcends the conventional boundaries of 2D neon-light design. Visitors will have the opportunity to appreciate the installation from various angles while being captivated by the iconic backdrop of Victoria Harbour.

In addition to the Neon-light Art Installation, the Art Park will feature the ‘Light Archway of Romance,’ a 24-metre-long structure creating an exclusive and enchanting atmosphere for couples to enjoy. The ‘Starlight Pathway’ adorned with twinkling lights, resembling the Milky Way, will provide a magical setting for leisurely strolls. Visitors can also explore the ‘Time Trail,’ where the interplay of light and shadow creates a captivating ambience.

To further enhance the experience, pop-up specialty stalls will be available on designated dates, offering a wide variety of festive delicacies, beverages, and creative gifts. For those seeking a hands-on experience, the Art Park Valentine’s Day Preserved Bouquet Art & Painting Workshop will allow visitors to express their love and care through the art of preserved flowers and painting.

On Valentine’s Day, visitors can immerse themselves in a symphony of love with special evening performances during Busking by the Sea, featuring the talented local band, The Flame. Under the moonlight, visitors will have the opportunity to dedicate a special song to their loved ones, creating unforgettable memories.

Throughout February 2024, restaurants, cafés, and shops within WKCD will offer special promotions, including festive food and beverages, as well as a delightful selection of adorable gifts.
