Flying Lanterns & Fireworks

After the parade our city held a large fireworks display in honor of the Mid-Autumn Festival, the International Tourism Parade and the upcoming National Day. We weren’t sure exactly where the fireworks were to be lit, so when they started we found ourselves still pretty far away. They were impressive!

These candle-lit paper hot-air balloons were lit off to send good wishes to heaven.

These “stars” are actually several candle-balloons.

    They had these at the end of High School Musical 2. It was the first time I had seen them, and I was so fascinated by them that I goggled them for 15 minutes. I thought it would be so neat to have one and set it flying together as a family, but I could not figure out what to google. Flying paper lanterns and paper candle lanterns didn’t yield anything, so I am excited to see that they are paper hot air balloons.
