Please join us at the Vietnamese Moon Festival on Saturday, October 10, in Thomas Paine Park (near City Hall) for an afternoon filled with new cultural experience. Play traditional folk games with easy rules and non-stop laughter! Try a moon cake – the Vietnamese delicacies you might have seen but never knew the taste. Hear (and participated in) the legends of the Goddess of the Moon, re-enacted by our energetic storytellers. Conclude with the marching of the biggest lantern you’ve ever seen!
Once you’re there, you might not want to leave, but if you do, be sure to take with you the adorable animal balloons that we’ll teach you to make. You will like yours so much you want to make a second or third animals for your friends! FREE AND OPEN TO EVERYONE. 2-6 pm on Saturday, October 10, 2015. Thomas Paine Park / Foley Square. Lafayette St & Worth St, New York, NY 10007. (City Hall stop on the 4, 5, 6, J, Z train)
