Mid-Autumn Festival

The Mid-Autumn Festival takes place after the harvest season, and is traditionally a time for families to reunite and relax together after a hard period of rice growing and gathering. Around Hoi An, troupes will perform lion dances to the beat of drums and gongs, children will carry glowing lanterns through the streets, and every family will gather to sample delicious mooncakes and sip tea under the bright light of the full moon.
