The Hong Kong Jockey Club hosted its annual Pre-season Carnival at Sha Tin Racecourse today, Saturday, 24 August, and more than 9,000 people turned out to enjoy the fun.
Racehorse Owners, Club Members, guests and the general public, took part in a variety of educational and racing-related activities one week out from the 2019/20 season opener on 1 September.
The popular event as usual provided a welcoming, family-friendly environment packed with fun attractions. One of the novel activities this year was the “Bamboo Fun” upcycling workshop. Driven by upcycling initiatives, the workshop shared DIY techniques to create items such as swings and Chinese musical gongs from recycled bamboo. Another activity, KMB Road Safety City, sought to instill road safety among youngsters. And, for the second year in a row, the 4M STEAM Fun Academy provided lots of fun for kids while helping them improve their STEM knowledge.
