Date: Dec 14 (Fri)-Feb 2 (Sat)
Venue: Central Harbourfront Event Space
9 Lung Wo Road, Central
Admission: $85/$120/$300 (buy HERE!)
Although not quite a sporting activity per se, a good deal of hand-eye coordination, spatial awareness and courage will still be needed in order to conquer the various fun fair games and rides as the AIA Carnival returns for its 5th anniversary this week!
In line with celebrations to commemorate said occasion, organisers are promising an absolute extravaganza of lights, music and heart-stopping acrobatic feats put on by performers from the Great Circus of Europe.
Just make sure to work extra hard to earn that cotton candy...

3. 16 DEC Hunger Games HK (Archery Tag)
Date: Dec 16 (Sun)
Venue: Happy Valley Recreation Ground
Wong Nai Chung Road
Admission: $150 (more details HERE!)
If you ever fancied yourself as something of a Legolas, Robin Hood or Katniss Everdeen, this could be your next favourite thing to get up to on a Sunday night.
While the stakes in this Hunger Games-styled archery tag event aren't quite life and death as the arrows unfortunately are foam-tipped, don't let it stop you from volunteering as tribute and sating your bloodlust.
All equipment will be provided except a pair of comfy shoes you get around in (unless you happen to own foam tipped arrows and a bow already), with protective headgear also included.

No More Chaos list of things to do over the weekend would be complete without something completely and utterly outdoorsy.
This week, we've found yet another bunch of friendly folk at OutRunners HK, who are more than happy to take you slightly off the beaten path for a pleasant stroll/jog/run along Bowen Road, with the trail described as "easy" to "medium".
Since runners will be of all sorts of levels, backgrounds and experiences, who knows what you might pick up along the way and who you might find to help you on your fitness journey going forward!
