Check out our roundup of fun-filled events for both you and the kiddos over the next 7 days; it’s all here in Your Awesome Week!
If you were in Honkers last year, you’ll know that the AIA Great European Carnival is as close to Winter Wonderland in the 852 as it gets! Mamas fresh from across the pond will no doubt be missing that Crimbo carnival-vibe that hits as soon as it starts to get dark at 2pm. Well, we’ve got the best of both worlds here mama, we get to enjoy a little more daylight AND hit up Hong Kong’s biggest carnival which holds tremendous fun for the whole family. Set against the stunning harbour backdrop, spend the day eating, laughing, playing and hopping on board over 29 rides with the family. The run up to Christmas just got a little bit brighter and a heck of a lot merrier!
When: Monday, 21 December – Sunday, 21 February
Where: Central Harbourfront Event Space, Hong Kong
How much: Buy them online here for $133, inclusive of 10 tokens or grab them on the door for $125!
Come one, come all – the circus is in town, mamas! But, don’t expect to clap along with dancing bears at this one. It’s CIRQUE ADRENALINE! Get ready to bite your nails as you watch some of the word’s most talented daredevil performers perform death-defying circus acts! This one is bound to have you and the family on the edge of your seats as performers take on extreme stunts that’ll have your hearts pounding. Watching through your hands is totally acceptable.

It’s the last one of the year mama, but don’t fret – there’s still time to finish off all of that (albeit very) last minute Christmas shopping. Even if it’s just for a few bits and bobs, the market at Olympian City has an array of workshops, food and crafts so if you’re still looking for those festive napkin holders that you can’t do without (we get it) – you may just be in luck! Even if you’re on top of the game this year (high five!) bring the family and bask in the festivities as we count down the days until Christmas.
When: Monday, 21 December – Saturday, 26 December
Where: Olympian City, 1 Hoi Wang Road, West Kowloon, Hong Kong

Put your feet up this Christmas, the hard work’s already been done for you, mama!
