Mid-Autumn Festival or Moon Festival takes place on the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar. Chinese people believe that on that day, the moon is the biggest, roundest and brightest. And the term round implies family reunion in Chinese. So the Moon Festival is a festival for members of a family to get together wherever it is possible.
The Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival is one of the most significant Chinese Festivals on the lunar calendar. Every year it is celebrated with the eating of Rice Dumplings and, most famously, the Dragon Boat Races after which the celebration is named.
