Mid-Autumn Lantern Carnivals

The Mid-Autumn Festival abounds with characteristics of Chinese traditions and folk culture. To enjoy the festival with members of the public, the Entertainment Office organises Mid-Autumn Lantern Carnivals in different districts yearly. These fun-filled evening programmes feature spectacular lantern displays and performances, showcasing folk songs, dances and traditional stage arts. Other popular activities like lantern riddle games, palm-reading and game stalls are also very welcome by the participants. To enrich the festive atmosphere, artists dressed in ancient-style clothes are also arrange to roam around the carnival sites.

Mid-Autumn Thematic Lantern Display

During the Mid-Autumn Festival in each year, we choose an appropriate location to hold a month-long lantern display. The lanterns illuminate the city, allowing both locals and tourists to sample the festive atmosphere and to appreciate the art of traditional lantern making.
