Full Moon Lantern Festival

20.04.2016 @ 5:00:00 - 10:00:00

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every 30 days that begins at 5:00pm, happening 2 times

The 14th day of every lunar cycle, Hoi An fills with both locals and tourists celebrating the full moon. The tradition includes offerings to shrines and burning incense to pay homage to Hoi An residents’ ancestors. The streets of the historic old town are lit only by lanterns as all fluorescent lighting is banned, so the usually charming town kicks it up a notch during this festival and really shows its true colors.
