Lee Tung Avenue will celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival with hundreds of iconic Chinese lanterns to turn the tree-lined street into a destination for the public to take memorable photos and spend quality time with their loved ones.

From 2 September to 4 October 2022, over 800 colourful lanterns will be hanging above Lee Tung Avenue as part of the Mid-Autumn celebration themed “Sea of Lanterns: Blissful Mid-Autumn Reunion @ Lee Tung Avenue”.

The lanterns will be switched on every day from 5pm to create a mesmerising sight. Visitors could visit and take photos of the festive decorations during both day and night, and enjoy the delightful offers at Lee Tung Avenue. On the day of the Mid-Autumn Festival (10 September), each child will also receive a free mini lantern.

To add new meaning to the traditional festival, Lee Tung Avenue will be hosting two charity events for three consecutive weekends in September, including a charity marketplace by the Rotary Club of Hong Kong, and a charity pop-up organised by local handicraft fair organiser Dreamcatcher Inno Box and the Hong Kong Family Welfare Society (HKFWS).

The events will feature booths selling handmade items and lantern-making workshops, among other programmes. Proceeds from the sales will be used to provide welfare services for those in need in the community.

From 3 to 7 September 2022, the Rotary club at Lee Tung Avenue will be organising a charity marketplace that sells original handmade gifts and an exhibition tracing the club’s history. Organisations to take part in the bazaar include J Life Foundation Limited, Parsons Music Corporation, Rotaract Club of Hong Kong, Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden, Hong Kong Arts Centre, Arts with the Disabled Association Hong Kong and Hong Kong Women Workers’ Association.
