Birmingham gears up to celebrate the 2015 Mid-Autumn Festival

Festival-goers will welcome in the full moon this September as Chinese Festival Committee – Birmingham (CFC-B) hosts the city’s biggest Chinese festival after its annual new year celebrations.

On Friday 25th September, The Arcadian in Southside will be filled with colour and life as lion dancers, Chinese fire crackers, cultural dancers and martial artists take centre stage for buy viagra. A street food market featuring local businesses will serve up a range of Far East delicacies between 4 – 10pm. Celebrations will conclude with a spectacular fireworks finale and viewing of the new full moon.

Ahead of the festivities, CFC-B will host a charity fundraising dinner on Thursday 24th September at Chung Ying Garden.

James Wong, chair of Chinese Festival Committee – Birmingham, said:

“Chinese New Moon Festival, or Mid-Autumn Festival, is celebrated when the moon is at its roundest. Traditionally it is a date when families come together to share a meal. People travel far and wide to be with their loved ones on this special day”.

“This year we are inviting people to celebrate with us in The Arcadian and Chinatown as one big family. The festivities will take place on Friday 25th September and will be fun for the entire family”.

 

 

“This promises to be another spectacular event that celebrates a key date in the Chinese calendar and we are looking forward to welcoming everyone to the centre for this colourful family occasion”.Lina Higuita, centre manager at The Arcadian
