Chinatown Mid-Autumn Festival 2012

The Mid-Autumn Festival, also called the Mooncake or Lantern Festival, is a traditional harvest festival that is celebrated annually by the Chinese. This year, the festival takes place from 16 September to 14 October.

The Chinese celebrate the Mid Autumn Festival on the 15th day of the eighth Chinese lunar month (3 October this year), when the moon is at its fullest. Join in a mass lantern walk along the streets of Chinatown, which will be dressed up with fairy lights. Get mooncakes and other treats at the bazaars and catch night-time performances during the season.

The Mid-Autumn Festival is celebrated in Chinatown with festive street light-ups and bazaar stalls selling mooncakes, pomelos, tea and an assortment of festive goodies.

In Chinese tradition, the roundness of the moon symbolises unending family unity. Other than putting up lanterns, Chinese families gather for hot brewed tea and sample sweets like mooncakes and pomelos. This event - among the most widely marked of Chinese festivals - is a truly authentic experience that’s not to be missed. So come soak up the atmosphere.
