Mountains of Mooncakes: Marking Mid-Autumn Festival
Why We Recommend it
With its dragon dances, colourful lantern displays and moreish mooncakes, the Mid-Autumn Festival is one of the liveliest and most cherished holidays in Hong Kong.
Falling on the 15th day of the eighth month of the lunar calendar, the Mid-Autumn Festival, also known as the Moon festival, is a centuries-old harvest festival on which families get together and display offerings in honour of the full moon.
In Hong Kong, the festival will be celebrated with a wide range of activities such as making and sharing mooncakes, lantern exhibitions and carnivals, and fire dragon dances.
