The World in Colors

Mid-Autumn Thematic Lantern Display 2014 in Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong is very inspiring. How wonderful it will be if lanterns replace all weapons…

This year the theme is “The World in Colors”. There are many cute lantern dolls wearing various cultural garments, each holding a lantern to brighten up the world. Owing to the joint efforts of these lovely representatives all over the world, the night becomes more charming with such a peaceful and harmonious view. Guess the Moon Lady is working hard with the legendary rabbit to clean her place so that the beauty at the ground won’t outshine the full moon.

The display is from 2014-8-28 (Thu) to 2014-10-5 (Sun). Lighting time is from 6:30pm to 11:00pm. Come to spot your pal and take photos with these world peacemakers if possible.

For those who will celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival (2014-9-8) somewhere else, let my 16 photos feast your eyes.

May the light dispel darkness, fears, anger, hate and wickedness, end all wars and spread the peace to every corner of the world. Enjoy the full moon, moon cake (if available at your side) and be happy always.

Author’s note:

Tsim Sha Tsui is not the only place having a Lantern Carnival. If you are in Hong Kong during the Mid-Autumn Festival, don’t forget to visit Victoria Park as well. I haven’t paid a visit yet but I can share with you the photos taken last year. Let’s see if the images make your mouth water or you feel hungry all of a sudden after going through the “delicious” sight.
