Enjoy mid-autumn festival this weekend

(VNF) - On Saturday, (Sep 15), ParkCity Hanoi will host the event “MID-AUTUMN FESTIVAL OF REUNION” for families and young children while the International Kylin and Lion Dance competition will be held in Da Nang city on Sep 14-16.

“MID-AUTUMN FESTIVAL OF REUNION” is an annual event hosted by the residential area with the aim to help families enjoy warm, loving moments together in this season of festival.

Under the bright moon of the lunar August full moon, ‘secrets’ wait to be discovered by young children inside the “Moon Palace”. Other activities include meeting up with chị Hằng (Chang’e – the Moon Lady) and chú Cuội (the Moon Man), enjoying lion dance, making mooncakes, having the full-moon feast – which only happen once in a year during Mid-Autumn Festival.

You will also get to enjoy a shopping experience and amazing foods with more than 80 extravagant stalls on ParkCity avenue. Unique performances: magic show, circus show, lucky draw, music performances with street artists, gifts for the children,… are also a highlight of the event.

The organisers hope to create a family-friendly space to build a prosperous community, where families gather and connect in this festival.

The event will begin at 2 pm – 10 pm at ParkCity Hanoi (Le Trong Tan street, Ha Dong district, Hanoi). Free entry.
