The lantern parade commences at 8pm but visitors can enjoy a wide range of community and roving performances as well as numerous food options from Adelaide's most iconic food trucks starting from 3pm. The lantern parade will showcase various large handmade paper lanterns, among them the popular 40m Hong Kong Dragon and nine brand new lanterns. A firework display over the River Torrens will mark the end of the event.

Moon Lantern Parade event is based on the Mid-Autumn Festival, a harvest festival celebrated by Chinese all over the world. This festival is held on the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar when there is a full moon at night. Family and friends gather together on this day to eat mooncakes and admire the moon. Children carry lanterns and parade around the neighbourhood.

This event is free, so do drop by if you want to experience a slice of Asian culture.
