Also known as the Mid-Autumn Festival, the Chinese Moon Festival is a lunar celebration! It is also the second most important Chinese festival to the Chinese New Year. Asian countries such as Vietnam, China, and Singapore celebrate harmony, family reunion, and successful harvest through Moon Festival because the moon is believed to be the biggest and fullest at this time of year. The Chinese Moon Festival is taking place here in The Woodlands, so grab the family and head over to The Woodlands Children’s Museum this Saturday!
Starting at 10 AM the Chinese Moon Festival will be held at The Woodlands Children’s Museum on Saturday September 14th. There will performances, a puppet show, and art projects for those who attend! This event takes you on whimsical journey using the phases of the moon to tell the tale of Little Star’s lack of self-control when it comes to eating, especially mooncake. The Shadow Puppet Theatre will be performing “A Big Moon Cake for Little Star” by Grace Lin from 11 to 11:15 AM. Next on the agenda for the Chinese Moon Festival will be Lianhong Thestory Magical Face Changer from 12 to 12:20 PM. To wrap up the agenda will be Henry Yang performing music from 1 to 1:20 PM.
