Macau’s Mid-Autumn Festival of Fireworks

Leave a comment


It’s Mid-Autumn Festival, one of the most anticipated day for the Chinese! In Macau, scintillating fireworks gave their celebratory sizzles, for it is also the 28th Macao International Fireworks Display tonight. In a way, I guess, it is going to occlude our round, lucid moon, the supposed lead character of the 15th, but the fireworks were nevertheless breath-taking. No one, at least not me, complained about it. The fireworks program is called ‘Mid-Autumn Harmony’ for a reason!


9 p.m sharp, and we see the brilliant bursts of Japanese flowers in the night sky in front of the Macau Tower. They were so…symmetrical to the architecture, and I must say that it is an incredible show.

There was another show at 9:41 p.m; this time it was the Korean team. Because my camera (totally at the right moment) ran out of space, I’d only managed to get a couple of shots. But really, it was as fantastic as the Japanese one.

Anyway, this is my first post, so please excuse my mistakes and the brevity of the content! But it’s Mid-Autumn Festival today after all—the day for families to reunite and fireworks to ignite. No time for anything else!

If you want to know more about the Macao International Firework Display, and want to be right on time to watch the spectacle or read my posts about it, you can visit http://fireworks.macaotourism.gov.mo/ where it gives the entire schedule, plus the list of the countries. Cheer for your country and enjoy the others’!

And if you want to use my pictures, please be sure to ask me first in the comments and give me credit. Normally I wouldn’t mind, but the results came out surprising well in this novice’s eyes.

Happy Mid-Autumn Festival, everyone!
