HK celebrates Lantern Festival

In Hong Kong, people have reunited to celebrate the Lantern Festival although the public holiday has already ended. This is a large lantern gala in Tseung Kwan O Po Tsui Park with colorful lanterns of different shapes, combining with both traditional and modern elements.

The organizer also invited some artists and arranged a wish-making activity at the gala.

Some local residents also brought their children to expose them to more traditional Chinese culture.

And a spectacular Lantern Festival carnival is planned in Tsim Sha Tsui on Monday night.

It is themed on the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac.

Other celebrations are being held across Hong Kong for the Lantern Festival and visitors can also enjoy traditional folk songs and dances.
