Mid Autumn Festival

The Lantern display is fabulous with all the lights and shapes, the pictures really don't do it justice. They had about six different peacocks all in different colors, with flower lanterns around and all the little lanterns strung in the background.

The dragon lanterns were amazing, they are cloth painted, stretched over frames and then lit up.

The mid autumn festival or lantern festival has many good and fun things about it and some "yucky " things such as mooncake. The traditional mooncake has this lotus seed egg yolk center which was not my favorite. It is also a tradition to eat lots of kinds of fruit. Lanterns are carried by children and the local park has a huge display of lanterns.
