For the first time in Hong Kong history, it just looks like it may be a quiet week. With the build up to Taste Festival starting next Thursday, it seems all events are being held on Saturday this week. So I guess you better choose which one of these four fun-filled events you want to go to this weekend, or find a way to attend all of them?
5 March: Little Burro Block Party
The best party in Hong Kong is back! The legendary street party held by the Little Burro crew is guaranteed to smash any other Saturday plans you had. These guys have yet to have a block party where the sun hasn’t been shining, and while we don’t want to jinx it, whatever happens you can can guarantee the best music, the best burritos and the best beers.
12 – 6pm Little Burro, 1 Upper Station Street, Sheung Wan
If the street parties and happy hours aren’t your thing head over to West Kowloon waterfront for a day of wellness. This free festival will be offering 8 yoga classes, meditation, a marketplace, face-painting, prizes, games and so much more. Bring along your mat and water bottle and work out to the view of our favourite city in the world. Kids are welcome too!

5 March: Editing for Teens
The perfect event for any budding film editors. Did you watch the Oscars this week and dream about being there one day? Well this could be the first step to that. This one day workshop will give you a comprehensive understanding of both the technical concepts and theories behind editing. Using Adobe Premiere as your digital editing software you can expect to return with some priceless advice and information. Tickets cost $1800
10am – 5pm 1/F Trust Tower, 68 Johnston Road, Wan Chai
5 March: There’s no place like home
Li Po Chun United World College of Hong Kong is proudly presenting a special theatrical
performance aimed to create awareness of the homeless in Hong Kong. The 15 student performers all went to personally meet and interview homeless locals on the streets and in hostels around the city, in order to create the most realistic performances – prepared and rehearsed in only a week. The show will be in both English and Cantonese so make sure you head over to support this great cause, and the creative students that are a part of it. Tickets are $100 (free to students, seniors, and the homeless), with all proceeds being donated to charity to provide support for Hong Kong’s homeless community.
7:30pm 10 Lok Wo Sha Lane, Sai Sha Road, Shatin
