Tai O Lantern Festival
Time Out says
Tai O art community group, Tai O Fei Mao Li, is back to bring city dwellers a glistening Mid-Autumn Festival this year as the annual Tai O Lantern Festival returns. Lighting up the streets of Hong Kong's mini Venice, the festival features a slew of handmade lanterns in all shapes and colours; all made and decorated by Tai O locals and volunteers.
Unfortunately, due to the surge of visitors over the weekend, organisers of the Tai O Water Village Lantern Festival will be suspending the lantern lighting on September 21, 22, 27, and 28. The festival will still run until the end of the month, but lanterns on the village's two main bridges will not be lit. Stay up to date with the latest arrangements on Tai O Fei Mao Li's official Facebook page.
If you do decide to visit, please be reminded not to disturb the local villagers and be respectful of their privacy.
