Autumn festivals

Today we can celebrate the Moon Festival (Mid-Autumn Festival) in Hong Kong

This traditional Chinese celebration is marked by shrines of gifts to honour the moon goddess, with lantern displays and deliciously sweet moon cakes on sale.

Galway International Oyster Festival
September 27 to 30

The Irish port of Galway's annual oyster festival is a collective binge on the oysters that grow wild on the sea beds of Galway Bay. Highlights include the World Oyster Opening Championships and an Oyster Pearl Contest.

But ...For wilder times, head straight to the Oktoberfest in Munich, which is synonymous with beer, all things Germanic and constant partying.
