Marking the “Harvest Moon” is a cultural practice celebrated by many Asian cultures around the world. Moon Festival Lantern Celebration fosters understanding and appreciation for cultural diversity by sharing Asian cultural traditions in music, arts, dance and performance, as well as offering hands-on opportunities for everyone to participate.

Dress up, bring your own creative lantern (battery-lit). Food trucks will be on site.
