13th September 2021 – (Hong Kong) The approaching Mid-Autumn Festival is the best time to have a reunion with family or friends. In this case, people need to look for a place readily reachable by public transportation and at the same time filled with festive atmosphere, where we can enjoy decent food, beverage, and shopping. Lee Tung Avenue is often the most popular spot preferred by locals.
At the Mid-Autumn Festival this year, over 688 colourful lanterns will be hung on every corner of the boulevard, transforming it into a unique festive check-in hotspot. Meanwhile, LTA is cooperating with Dreamcatcher and charity Make-A-Wish Hong Kong to launch a charity market – Handcrafted Avenue, which exhibits various handcrafts in collaboration with over 30 local units to raise funds for children in sickness and realize their wishes. Coupled with a series of festive events and surprise offers from merchants in the venue, every visitor can enjoy a fun and warm festival.
From traditional folk handcrafts used for lighting to traditional festive symbols, colourful lanterns have long been one irreplaceable symbol of the Mid-Autumn Festival. From 11th September to 25th October, more than 688 colourful lantern decorations will be hung along LTA. The lanterns may shine in red, pink, green, and purple, so LTA will be beaming with festive mood. The scenery at night will be particularly splendid. The gorgeous sea of lights combine with Chinese and Western architectural features on both sides, making LTA an eagerly-anticipated check-in hotspot in town.
