Picnic in the Park is back for 2016!
- Written by October 19, 2015
Picnic in the Park - one of our community's best-loved events - will be back in 2016 after funding issues saw the event cancelled in 2015.
The 10th anniversary of the live music and dance festival will take place in Siena Park in Discovery Bay on January 30, 2016.
The event draws crowds of more than 10,000 people and will have 60 acts performing on two custom-built stages.
Picnic in the Park has been actively raising awareness for Hong Kong children's charities since 2006, with the Hong Kong Student Aid Society and the Hong Chi Children's Home the main beneficiaries of fundraising.
For the 10th year anniversary event, the organizers hope to raise more than HK$500,000 in funds for these charities. Charity collections will be taken throughout the day to supplement donation points at the main entrance to Siena Park.
The event organizers would like to thank the Discovery Bay City Owner's Committee, Discovery Bay City Management and HKR International Ltd.
"Their active support has made the 10th year anniversary Picnic in the Park possible," organisers said.
"See you in the New Year!"
The return of the event comes after it was cancelled in 2015 due to the financial backer withdrawing support.
