Los Angeles celebrates Chinese culture during Mid-Autumn Festival

The Mid-Autumn Festival is a traditional harvest festival which falls on the 15th day of the eighth month on the Chinese lunar calendar, with this year’s landing on Monday.

Among the many attractions was a highly skilled Chinese master who was crafting colorful dough figures. One couple expressed their appreciation at the handmade artworks, reveling in the intricate attention to detail and vibrant colors on the figurines.

Others enjoyed soaking up the atmosphere at the event, feeling like they had been transported to a mini Asian town.

“I’m impressed with the decorations; how beautiful it looks and the entire atmosphere. And it really creates, it’s almost like a miniature Asian town. But I see the balloons, I see the festivities, I hear the music, I look at the people and I enjoy everything that it represents,” said a local visitor.

Since 2004, the central plaza located on the South Coast has held Chinese-themed celebrations each year during the traditional Mid-Autumn Festival, allowing locals to learn more about the wonders of Chinese culture.

“It is a very fantastic activity which enables locals to understand the Mid-Autumn Festival and the Chinese culture. Meanwhile, it plays a very important role to the promotion of the mutual understanding between the two peoples, especially for people to realize the importance of bilateral relations,” said Zhang Ping, the Chinese consul general in Los Angeles.
