MOONCAKE FESTIVAL in Hong Kong (Wikipedia).

Garden Grove’s historic Main Street will host a Mooncake Festival event on Sunday from 4 – 9 p.m. There will be free mooncakes, lanterns, drinks coupled with entertainment and children activities throughout the event.

Mooncake Festival, also known as Mid-Autumn Festival, is a traditional event celebrated in Asia. Its history goes back more than 2,000 years and it is considered one of the most important festivals by some Asian countries. The festival represents togetherness as family comes together and enjoys some delicate mooncakes while children play with their bright lanterns.

The event is expecting more than 500 visitors, mostly families with children. 

Main Street will be closed to cars between Garden Grove Boulevard and Acacia Parkway following the weekly Farmer’s Market, which ends at 2 p.m. There will be performances from a local children group, a face-painting station, and games included are friendly bingo, egg-balancing race, and potato sack race. 

Additionally, there will be a couple costume contest with a grand prize of $300 for both children under the age of 15 years old and adults between 15 – 25 years old and other cash prizes up to $2,000.
