(visavietnam.net.vn) - The second most important festival after TET, the Mid Autumn Festival (Vietnamese: Tết Trung Thu) is held on the 15th day of the 8th month in the Lunar Calendar. This normally falls in September or early October. This festival is best observed in Lương Nhữ Học street, District 5, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. You are also likely to see lion dancing and folk singing contest around this area. The Mid Autumn festival will be on September 27, 2015 and September 15, 2016.
In the festival, Saigonese are rushing down to ‘lantern street’, to admire the beauty of sparkling lanterns in different shapes and colors. The colorful lanterns help children celebrate this special day by holding lanterns and singing songs as they walk around the neighborhood and savor moon-cake with friends and families. According to some lantern shop owners at Lương Nhữ Học Street, this year there have been large amounts of visitors to the street but only a few of them are actually buying lanterns… there is still plenty of time.
Lương Như Học will be open 3 weeks before the Mid-Autumn Festival.
