Mid-Autumn Moon Festival and National Day Celebration

I was able to celebrate my first ever official mid-autumn moon festival in Hong Kong on 9/30 and National Day on 10/1. Although most of HK is glittered with colorful lights and lanterns throughout the city, I decided to check out the Lee Kum Kee Lantern Wonderland. The centerpiece attraction, Golden Moon, was at the heart of the display with a miserably long line to get inside which I dared not queue for.

Glowing lanterns and decorations all over the place:

My fav part, the snacks galore:

Mochi with peanut filling!
