The most important and best part of this festival is seeing all the different lanterns at night, and there are riddles on the lanterns for kids to guess. Going out to view the lanterns is a family affair. As well as lanterns there is also some lion dances and fireworks.
People usually eat Yuan xiao, which is rice balls with a delicious filling such as black-sesames or red bean paste.
