The Moon Festival, also known as the Mid-Autumn Festival, is a traditional holiday celebrated in China and other Asian countries, dating to the Tang Dynasty (618-907 A.D.). It's celebrated on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month in the Chinese calendar when the moon is at its fullest and brightest of the year. It's a family holiday much like Thanksgiving in the United States. Families gather to watch the full moon rise and enjoy pastries made specifically for the event called “moon cakes.” Take part in this special evening including Chinese storytelling, traditional songs, and crafts and games. Try a traditional mooncake and view the moon through a high-powered telescope, courtesy of the Riverside Astronomical Society. For more information about Heritage House, click here.
