The government would consider longer opening hours for the exhibition of the animated version of Riverside Scene at Qingming Festival after all 600,000 admission tickets sold out in less than a week, a Leisure and Cultural Services Department spokesman said yesterday. Fewer than 15,000 of the 200,000 free tickets for group visits were left. He described the response as 'overwhelming' and said the length of the exhibition could not be extended.
