Heritage Fiesta cum Roving Exhibition 2023 to launch in October

     The Heritage Fiesta cum Roving Exhibition 2023, to be held by the Commissioner for Heritage's Office (CHO) of the Development Bureau from October to December, will feature 10 declared monuments and graded historic buildings that are related to greening and landscape.
     A spokesman for the CHO said today (September 15), "The declared monuments and historic buildings featured in the event have rich history and unique architectural features. Two of the historic buildings have received honours from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization Asia-Pacific Awards for Cultural Heritage Conservation.
     "The participating historic buildings in this event are closely tied to the green landscape and nature where they are located or in their surroundings. Through this event, we hope to encourage the public to explore the historic value and significance of these built heritages, as well as the stories that connect them with their surrounding environment."
