Central is not just a place for business! And summer is not just for staying indoors.
Let’s unleash our imagination: three generations of buses under one roof? A beach in front of Victoria Harbour? Why should a basketball hoop have only one? Frying an egg under the sun? A whale comes ashore? Let’s have fun at the waterfront in Central together. Experience new photo spots and thrills!From the official website of Summerfest2023

“One Citybus” – Hong Kong Bus Exhibition
One of the main events is the “One Citybus,” a bus exhibition showcasing Hong Kong’s retired buses, vintage buses, and active buses. It includes a special restoration and display of the jumbo buses that used to run in Hong Kong until the late 1990s. The exhibition attracted many bus enthusiasts, from adults to children.
It seems that there is a pop-up store and game booth available for a limited time from June 16th to June 18th.
You cannot enter the bus, but you can get close and look inside.
There were also many people with professional cameras.
Bus enthusiasts are observing every detail.
You can take photos and feel like a driver at the photo booth.
The bus exhibition will be until June 18th. It seems that there is an event where you can vote for your favorite colored bus.
The event venue is divided into various programs.
There are shaded areas in the venue, but it is mostly outdoors. It was hot and exhausting just standing, so there was a water station. You can refill your water bottles here.
If kids want to play in the water area, it would be good to have a change of clothes.
Beach volleyball matches are also held, and you can even watch serious games. It’s a tough sport to play volleyball on the sand, which is already challenging enough to run on.
There was also a space selling camp merchandise. As it was the second day of the event, there were fewer booths, but it might increase in the future.
A trampoline for small children to play on
The large whale is very impressive. It’s big enough for children to hide in.
Children can jump on a giant sunny-side-up egg. The sunny-side-up egg was hot from being exposed to the sun!
There are also many activities that families can enjoy, such as the colorful play area called “Burnout Playground” and the balance bikes for young children called “Little Driver’s Racing Track.”
On June 18th (Sunday), the “Hong Kong Balance Bike Carnival 2023” will be held with hundreds of kids participating in the venue.“Aim for a Total of -8cm Weight Loss Experience” Tried Going to Elsene!
You can see the popular ducklings right near this venue.
The two ducks placed in Victoria Harbour are arranged like symmetrical kanji characters representing happiness (“囍”) and friendship (“朋”), symbolizing partnership, friendship, and the double happiness that comes from becoming one.

If “DOUBLE DUCKS” is your only purpose, the shortest distance is from MTR Admiralty Station.
We could see them from a distance. But something was strange… There should be two ducks, but…
As we got closer! Guess what! One of them was deflated…!
Perhaps it couldn’t withstand the heat.
It was the first day of the public opening, and to everyone’s surprise, there was only one.
One of them had a different appearance than expected, but it was still great to see!
You can rest assured that you can see the other two as well.
