Moon Festival

Saturday evening, near Chung King Way. The lion sees you. Don't stand on her/his back!



The Moon Festival/Mid-Autumn Festival dates 3,000+ years. Which explains the hip-hop dance event in the midst of festivities, which my daughter and her friends loved. You don't last 3,000 by ignoring hip hop. Unless you're the moon.

The lion drama was part of the evening's "cultural performances" set to dance/film score music. There were also cooking demonstration (moon pies), astronomy (moon viewing, through a special telescope), and a ping pong tournament (moon bashing?). Lots of fun. The cooking demo MC made a point of mentioning Echo Park's Phoenix Bakery vis-a-vis the moon pie.
