HKJC PRESENTS SIMPLE GIFTS OF JOY

What’s the perfect gift for the holiday season? Often, it’s the intangible things that have the most lasting impression – those spontaneous smiles, those warm embraces, those moments shared together. Christmas is that special time of year where these little things take on an extra special meaning. It’s this spirit that Tai Kwun and The Hong Kong Jockey Club (“HKJC”) are channelling this Christmas with Simple Gifts of Joy. Tree of Togetherness The Simple Gifts of Joy journey begins on Parade Ground: at the centre is the soaring, beautifully adorned Christmas tree that will become a festive Hong Kong icon. Every evening, the tree will glow with a magical light show, creating a special atmosphere across the space. The historic buildings surrounding Parade Ground will also come alive with a symphony of dramatic lighting.
