The cultural authorities of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) plans to hold a fun day Saturday to showcase a variety of Hong Kong intangible cultural heritage (ICH) items, it said Wednesday.

According to the Intangible Cultural Heritage Office (ICHO), the event includes a wide array of activities, such as Cantonese opera, unicorn coloring and King of the Ghosts face mask drawing workshops.

A video program entitled "ICH Legacy: Passing on with Passions" will be screened and ICH tours will also be arranged for visitors to learn about ICH items, said the ICHO.

The first Representative List of the ICH of Hong Kong was announced in August 2017, and 10 local items have been inscribed into the list, including Cantonese opera, herbal tea, the Cheung Chau Jiao Festival and the Tai O dragon boat water parade.
