The Mid-Autumn Festival is a favorite with children, as the occasion calls for more toys, candies, fruit, and entertainment than any other time of the year. Mid-Autumn parties serve cakes like the banh deo and banh nuong, shaped like fish and the moon. Finally, lion dances are commonly performed by traveling troupers who go from house to house to perform for a fee.

The Mid-Autumn Festival takes place on the 15th day of the eighth month of the Chinese lunar calendar.  The annual ‘Tuyen Quang City Festival’ was officially held at Nguyen Tat Thanh Square in the northern mountainous province of Tuyen Quang with a mass parade of beautiful and giant lanterns made by locals.
