Friday, September 25, 2015

From 4:30 PM to 7:30 PM

Boys & Girls Club

65 Tainter Street Worcester, MA 01610

This is an event for families and their children, which is open to the entire community. Free Admission. There will be free refreshments, community resource tables, face painting, free lanterns for children 13 and under and free moon cakes for all attendants to taste.

You can expect to enjoy cultural performances from our Worcester Youth Nian Dance (WYND) group, martial arts demonstrations and the traditional lantern parade by the WYND Lions to end the Festival.

The celebration of the Moon Festival, which traditionally falls on a full moon, symbolizes the completion of the harvest season. Originally, the Moon Festival came about as a way for parents to make up for lost time with their children after the harvest. The harvesting season is usually done by September (August in the Lunar calendar).

SEAC would like to thank you for your help and support in promoting this program for the entire Worcester community. If you need further information please feel free to contact Kathy Chau, (508-791-4373 or e-mail: info@seacma.org.
