Not long now until the rotund red guy makes an appearance, but why not have a little fun with the whole family beforehand?

Things to do this weekend in Hong Kong: 23-24 December
AIA Carnival is back!
It’s that time of year again, folks! The AIA Carnival is back in town, running until 17 February, 2019. Get excited for all the rides and games you can handle, and the widely acclaimed Great Circus of Europe from the United Kingdom, led by Ring Mistress, Miss Hayley Gandey. Acts include: (possibly) the world’s Strongest Man, the Rubber Man, a Cloud Swing, the London Showgirls and a giant double space wheel – among several other acts debuting in Hong Kong for the first time.
And when you need to take a break from all the fun, there is a selection of Carnival Eats available throughout the space to fill you up. Get ready for selfie installations, free entertainment on the Community Stage, orchestra and youth performances, and much, much more.
Celebrating six years in Hong Kong–which is no small feat!–Odd One Out has put together a group exhibition called Good Times. Running until 6 January, the simple brief of ‘good times’ was given to a selection of Hong Kong artists, including Kylie Chan, Charlene Man, Pearl Law Yiyu Lam, and Onion Peterman, with each artists creating a triplicate in miniprint format.
Check out all the art exhibitions in Hong Kong you need to visit in December/January.
