On the 15th day of the eighth month in the lunar calendar, gather your family and friends to admire the full moon and think of absent loved ones. The celebration is based on an ancient Chinese tradition going back more than 3,000 years.
Traditionally it's the Asian mid-autumn harvest but here in Adelaide it's become a popular gathering for all. A large number of community groups and at least ten schools will be participating this year, helped by volunteers from Technical And Further Education SA.
More than 20,000 people are expected to enjoy workshops, food and market stalls and diverse performances on the main stage by local Asian community groups followed by a stunning Moon Lantern Parade at dusk and a spectacular fireworks finale.
Think it's so cool you added the 'how to' with the eHow site! This is just really such a magnificent thing to do... we've never made it to the moon lantern festival, but hope against hope to, this year.
