The inaugural Henry Blooms Moon Festival Family Fun Day is set to delight Sydney with its unique celebration of Chinese culture and full moon festivities.
Taking place at Burwood Park, Sydney, over the weekend of the 22nd to 23rd September, the festival will celebrate Burwood’s sister city partnership with Tienjing, Tiangin City, District of Hepin, China.
Hosted by New Impressions Media this family friendly event seeks to celebrate the values of Family, Harmony, and Reunion, bringing this important event in Chinese culture to the wider Australian community.
Organisers anticipate a crowd of 15,000 visitors per day, and 30,000 in total over the weekend.
The festival will be benefiting Learning Links, a charitable not for profit organisation established by parents to aid students with learning difficulties.
Like all good family gatherings, the festival will unite young and old over food, fun, and tradition. The event is a wonderful way to introduce children to traditional aspects of Chinese culture, and an opportunity for students to learn in an immersive and festive setting.
Activities all ages are bound to enjoy including lantern making, DIY paper cutting, or visiting stalls where they can buy mooncakes and other traditional delicacies.
The characters from Paw Patrol will be there, alongside other entertainment including magic shows, a petting zoo, the change to see a koala or a joey, and even try out the healing art of goat yoga. Come and have fun with family in this free-entry event.
