LOS ANGELES, Jan. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Hong Kong is ready to celebrate the "Year of the Horse" in spectacular style with the 19th Cathay Pacific International Chinese New Year Night Parade – a permanent fixture on the international holiday calendar. Organized by Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB), the iconic event will feature an extravagant procession of brightly coloured floats and world-class performers to the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront on the first evening of the 2014 Chinese New Year (Jan. 31), found only in Asia's World City.

Recognized as the leading destination for authentic and thrilling Chinese New Year festivities, Hong Kong is expected to catapult its annual celebration to unparalleled heights this year with an exhilarating "circus" parade route comprised of 34 intricately-designed floats and critically-acclaimed performing troupes spanning 15 countries and regions.

This year's parade is expected to deliver an impressive roster of remarkable acts, such as stunts by Singapore's Starlight Alchemy fire performers; marching and cycling band groups from Spain and The Netherlands; stilt entertainers from France, and the NFL's Washington Redskins Cheerleaders.

To facilitate coverage of the event, HKTB has arranged satellite feeds (free to air) for use by television broadcasters worldwide.
