On Halloween tonight, netizens launched the “Masquerade Halloween” to walk from Victoria Park in Causeway Bay to Lan Kwai Fong in Central. They put on masks of various government officials to express their dissatisfaction with the government and the mask ban.
Some bar insiders said that they are not worried that the protest will make Lan Kwai Fong become chaotic. On the contrary, they are worried about the police deployment, which will make the atmosphere tense, resulting in conflicts between police and civilians, and even the use of tear gas. The Lan Kwai Fong Association can arrange security guards to maintain order; Lan Kwai Fong restaurants and bars also said that today’s business hours are normal, and they have not considered closing early. The police have publicized in advance to remind shops in the area to close early when necessary in response to police actions to ensure safety.
At 7:30 pm, a large crowd gathered in Victoria Park in Causeway Bay. At 8 pm, they started walking towards Central. 3,000 riot police and 3 water cannon trucks were deployed on Hong Kong Island to guard against any eventuality. Police tried to block the march and raised yellow and blue warning flags, but citizens were undaunted and walked towards Lan Kwai Fong. As they passed the Cenotaph in Central, white flowers, candies and chocolate were offered to mourn the Hong Kong people who died because of the movement.
