Imagine looking up at the sky to see it ablaze with a sea of colourful lanterns. This magnificent sight is all too common at Lantern Festival celebrations. Also known as Mid-Autumn Festival or Moon Festival, the event is celebrated throughout Asia and is one of the most important festivals on the Chinese calendar.

In China the festival day is a public holiday and widely celebrated with colourful lanterns, fire dragon dances and the eating of moon cakes. Giant lanterns in the form of tigers, dragons and other animals are often displayed around town squares and temples, making for a dazzling display.
