Renfrew Ravine Moon Festival - Saturday, September 29th

Yes it's time we faced the truth. Summer is coming to an end, and Autumn is well upon us. I love Autumn. It's actually my favourite season. Fall colours, new tv shows, kids heading back to school, there's a crisp energy to it that revives me and kicks me into gear after the lazy days of summertime.

So what better way to celebrate than by heading down to the Renfrew Ravine Moon Festival? This is a fun community gathering to help celebrate the Harvest Moon. In Chinese culture, we usually have a family dinner and stock up on our "moon cakes" that we eventually give out to everyone we know.

So on Saturday September 29th, head on down to Slocan Park (by 29th Avenue skytrain station) at 4pm for the Harvest Fair. There is live music, food, and a homegrown vegetable contest. Then at 7pm, join in on the Twilight Parade, featuring lanterns, stilt dancers, a jazz band, fireworks, fire spinning, and a giant puppet show. Fun for all ages!

For more information, head on over to the Still Moon Arts Society website!
