More than 100,000 people are expected to throng the streets tonight for a string of New Year's Eve carnivals, parties and countdown celebrations. The traditional Victoria Park carnival - organised by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department - will, however, move to Sha Tin Park as Victoria Park is being renovated. The carnival, which will cost $2 million to stage, is expected to draw about 70,000 people. The annual New Year countdown in Times Square, Causeway Bay, will begin at 9pm. Live bands and singers will entertain the crowd and a concert for world peace will also be staged. Organisers of the Hong Kong Winter Carnival in Hunghom have prepared a special gift for the millionth visitor while 12 performers will start the New Year countdown on the Mega Drop, a 35-metre-high tower. Parties and dances are planned at the Gold Coast in Tuen Mun and a fashion show and baby crawling competition will be held at Ma On Shan. KCR East Rail will run an all-night service between Hunghom and Sheung Shui tonight and the MTR will also operate around the clock. Hongkong Tramways, the Peak Tram and cross-harbour ferry services will be extended. Some roads will be closed in Central, Wan Chai, Causeway Bay and Tsim Sha Tsui, and on-street parking will be suspended temporarily. Police will also launch a campaign against drink-driving tonight.
