Urban Mid-Autumn Carnival at Victoria Park
A one-stop-shop for all things Mid-Autumn. Lantern displays, Fire Dragon Dance parade, and many more traditional exhibitions and workshops for you to fully immerse yourself into the holiday.
Lantern Displays in Victoria Park
Part of the carnival, but so special it deserves its own shout-out. The highlight of the event is always a Lantern Wonderland, in which is signature piece is the winner of a design competition hosted annually by the Hong Kong Tourism Board.
Tsim Sha Tsui Interactive Lighting Installation
Near the promenade, this installation is a popular one with locals. It changes every year, but trust us when we say every year is equally as beautiful as the next. With the Hong Kong skyline in the background, it is the perfect way to soak in how special this time of year really is.
