A series of events are being held in Hong Kong to mark Thursday's 50th anniversary of martial arts icon Bruce Lee's death, with the city paying tribute to the Asian-American film star.

Lee died in 1973 in the territory at the age of 32. The Hong Kong Heritage Museum is hosting commemorative events in honor of the late kung fu legend, including a special exhibition, film screenings and the launch of Asia's first "Camp Bruce Lee," a day camp where 30 primary students can learn about his legacy.

A collaboration with the Bruce Lee Foundation, the camp was originally launched in the United States in 2018. The five-day event, to be held through Saturday, includes various workshops and features as well as an online meet-and-greet with Bruce Lee's daughter, Shannon Lee.

A free pop-up display entitled "Bruce Lee: A Timeless Classic," featuring memorabilia of the kung fu star, including publications, commemorative stamps and action figures, is also held at the museum.

Free screenings of Lee's films "The Way of the Dragon," "The Big Boss" and "Fist of Fury" on Thursday at the museum will be followed Saturday by a special screening of his debut film "The Kid" and a talk with Lee's former co-star, actress Alice Fung.
