Mid-Autumn Festival Dragon Dance

After consuming a number of mooncake, the mid-autumn comes to an end. Although its not a national holiday, the mid-autumn is celebrated with lanterns, dragon dances, and eating of mooncakes. đŸ™‚ photo 20130919_192235_zpsb9ff6fa5.jpgLast Thursday night, to mark the end of the festival, our neigbourhood staged a dragon dance in our promenade.
