"Legends of Lion Dance" 2024

The BHKS and the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in Brussels supported the 8th edition of the "Legends of Lion Dance" held in Antwerp, the port city of Belgium, from 8 to 11 February 2024.  It offered Belgian and Chinese in Antwerp a Hong Kong film night, an exhibition showcasing Hong Kong arts and culture; and a carnival with a Hong Kong booth, food market and Chinese cultural shows, among other cultural talks and workshops during the period.

Highlight of this 4-day event was a lively lion dance parade which delighted hundreds of local spectators as it made its way to Antwerp’s China Town to celebrate the start of the Chinese New Year on 10 February 2024, also the very first day of the Year of the Dragon.
