The Mid-Autumn Lantern Display at Tai Po Waterfront Park features large-scale rotating lanterns in its signature attractions such as pools, grasslands, and the Hong Kong Handover Memorial Tower inside the park. Paper cranes, paper boats, kongming lanterns, and the LCSD mascots “Living Boy” and “Gentle Cat” were installed, implying a full moon and reunion.
