KUNG FU SUPERSTAR BRUCE LEE TO BE HONORED IN HONG KONG
Hong Kong will host a weeklong Bruce Lee festival next month featuring films, a fan gathering and tours of Lee-related sites, to mark the unveiling of a statue of the martial arts movie legend by Chinese sculptor Cao Chongen. The official unveiling of the larger than life 6-foot-6 inch tall statue will take place on the Avenue of Stars which is Hong Kong's equivalent of Hollywood's Walk of Fame. Lee fans also will have a chance to discuss the Legendary Lee at a gathering in Hong Kong the same day, which would have been Lee's 65th birthday. The festival, November 25 through December 1 includes a tour of Lee's home and schools.
