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, folk craft demonstrations and game stalls are also very welcome by the participants.
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.
