Just two days ago, the work men and ladies were busy prepping for the upcoming Autumn aka mooncake – lantern festival. Huge lanterns the size of a person appeared, alongside 8 platform lifts and 2 massive chair lifts to allow the lanterns to be hung from the steel wires that suspend across Lee Tung Avenue.
Here are some visuals of the rather massive exercise…
Then, two days later… news of two powerful storms heading towards Hong Kong.
With a super typhoon set to strike possibly on Sunday, no chances are being taken. Take’em down!
What fun and I wonder if it matters how the lanterns are arranged when suspended because it’s all a mess now. The guys just marched over and threw them up in a heap. Will they just leave them there to the elements or secure something in the basement?
