The highly anticipated annual Chinese Moon Festival was ushered in with delicious moon cakes and exhilarating dragon dances at the Prouds Suva Central branch last night.

The festival, which is also known as the Mid-Autumn Festival, is celebrated on the eighth month of the lunar calendar with a full moon at night.

The significance of the moon’s round shape symbolises family reunion.

Members of the Chinese business community converged at the Prouds Suva Central branch to celebrate the auspicious occasion.

Yangs restaurant owner Susan Chen was elated by the great turnout and said that the celebration “brought her closer to home”.

The Chinese Youth Social and Cultural Association members also made the festival come alive with their dragon and chopsticks dances last night.
