New Delhi , Mar. 18 : Party rockers now head to Hong Kong for five weekends of themed parties, unique dining and entertainment experiences in Ocean Park.

Ocean Park announced the launch of its all-new dining festival, Chill Out @ the South, sponsored by Prudential Hong Kong Limited as a part of the Park's ongoing 40th Anniversary celebrations.

This culinary fete is being held on 19 evenings, from 17 March to 17 April, at the Park's Waterfront. Guests can enter the Park after 5:00p.m. on selected dates, for just HK dollars 168, to unwind beside the Park's beautiful Lagoon, while enjoying the mesmerising fountain, live music, a wide selection of fine wines and international food, as well as a variety of spectacular entertainment - including Ocean Park's signature show Symbio!, a special effects-laden extravaganza.

Chill Out @ The South will be showcased under three themes - 'All About Sake,' 'Pop and Rock Beer Fest' and 'In Taste of Excellence.' Guests will enjoy a whole new multi-sensory dining and entertainment experience, which also includes mini concerts, street and cultural shows, and themed workshops.

The festival is set to showcase the beauty and essence of Hong Kong's south side, and offer guests a truly unforgettable experience.
