River Hongbao Festival is held from 1 – 13 Feb 2011 at the Floating Platform. It will be open from 12pm to 11.30pm with the exception of 2 Feb, Chinese New Year Eve, which will be closed at 12.30am. It is themed as Year of the Rabbit: Many Returns
I went there and took some of the photos. Quite a few interesting decor there.
There’s a fun fair near the entrance of the River Hongbao Festival. Some of the games area are beneath the steps or under the sheltered area (below the seats of the floating platform. The kids will prefer to play games but heard the tokens are quite expensive for some of the games.
No need to worry about getting lost as there’s a map to guide.
This is how it looks from far.

Here’s the highlights of the exhibits at the Floating Platform. the coin. So cute right? It’s my favorite zodiac sign.
Look at the back of the coin. Haha. Yes, 1987 is indeed the year of the Rabbit. There are other coins featured too. If you can interested, you can come down to the Floating platform and see them.
There are many of these exhibits at the area.
What is this? you will know it when you visit the area at late evening time when it lights up. I think it is a bird.
Stage area… with some carrots balloons.
Hit the bells with coins and make a wish. Make a wish, make a wish (reminds me of Vic Chou’s song)

It will be better if see at night. Some are located near the Helix bridge nearby.
You can also visit the Youth Olympic Park nearby and see those photo collages (1 of them is shown below)
Photo of the athletes. But I can see 1person image from the collage if I make this image smaller.
You can visit the Helix bridge during the night time and see how beautiful the lights at that area.
