The Chinese Renyin calendar year Mid-Autumn Lantern Festival hosted by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) kicked off on Sept. 7. Many sets of Mid-Autumn Lanterns were displayed at three venues (Victoria Park, Man Tung Road Park in Tung Chung, and Tai Po Waterfront Park). The theme of this year’s Mid-Autumn Lantern Display at Tai Po Waterfront Park is “Full Round Moon, Full Moon Wish.”
The Mid-Autumn Lantern Display at Tai Po Waterfront Park exhibits large-scale revolving lanterns at its characteristic attractions such as pools, meadows, and the Hong Kong Handover Memorial Tower inside the park. Paper cranes, paper boats, kongming lanterns, and LCSD mascots “Enggie Pup” and “Artti Kitty” have been set up, implying a full moon and reunion of people.
