The new date for the 2010 Moon Festival is due to the forecasted tropical storms this weekend, to protect the safety and interest of guests.
In keeping with the theme, the festival has been moved to the next occurrence of a full moon.
The Moon Festival, also known as Zhong Qui Jie, translates to “Mid-Autumn Festival” and is second only to the Chinese New Year as a major event. The Festival celebrates the harvest season and autumnal equinox. The celebration will feature live music and dancing under the full moon, a cash bar, and American and Asian food specialties from more than 20 local restaurants, including the festival’s traditional dish, Moon Cakes.
Tickets for the Moon Festival are available for $40 for adults, $15 for children ages 6 through 12, and free for children under 5.
