Hundreds of thousands of Hong Kong people took to the streets yesterday - but this time not in anger. The mass turnout was in celebration of National Day, and as up to 70,000 mainland tourists arrived in the city to start 'golden week', crowds of local revellers were taking part in events across the city. Celebrations kicked off at 8am when Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa and about 700 guests attended the flag-raising ceremony at Golden Bauhinia Square. Later, about 10,000 people took part in a parade from Hong Kong Stadium in Causeway Bay to Southorn Playground in Wan Chai. The parade featured traditional arts performances and a dragon dance. Another 4,000 people visited PLA barracks at Stonecutter's Island, Shek Kong and Stanley. Marking the day in a different way were 1,961 people who broke the Guinness world record for assembling computers en masse in Shek Kip Mei. And in the grand finale, 405,000 people watched the 23-minute fireworks display over Victoria Harbour last night.
