Bethany / Hong Kong / Mid Autumn Festival / Recreation

The lanterns are here …

Mid Autumn Festival is upon us. It is the time when the moon is full, moon cakes are on sale in abundance, kids run around with glowsticks and lanterns while fairy lights adorn apartment complex’s all over town. Bethany went over to Victoria Park in Causeway Bay to see the lanterns this year and got the best surprise when she saw this one …

It’s a giraffe of course, and Bethany was over the moon. I love her expression here – aren’t I cruel?

There were lots of people and lots of lanterns, but nothing really spectacular this year unfortunately. It is always a wonderful experience to see the lanterns lit up at night – the reason it is so worthwhile.

Hope you all had a great Mid-Autumn even if you didn’t know you were celebrating it. 😉
