The Mid-Autumn Festival, also known as the Moon Festival or Zhongqiu Festival is a popular harvest festival celebrated by the Chinese dating back over 3,000 years. As homage to this time of year, Los Angeles Chinatown will host the 74th Annual Harvest Moon Festival on Saturday, Sept. 29, 2012 from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. This free event offers event-goers a chance to see exciting roaming cultural acts such as lion dancers and kung fu artists perform against the magical neon backdrop of LA Chinatown. Held in Chinatown's Central and West Plaza, the courtyards will be activated with hands-on cultural workshops, art gallery openings, food trucks, artisans, ghost storytelling, ping pong tourneys and shopping and dining at nearby Chinatown restaurants and merchants.

Children of all ages can enjoy art projects centered on the tradition of the Moon Festival and Chinatown bakeries will provide complimentary moon cake sampling. Foodies will be delighted as Chinatown's best chefs demonstrate their culinary prowess utilizing a state of the art outdoor kitchen--attendees get to sample the food after each dish is made. As the moon starts to rise above the horizon, attendees will get a chance to view the bright harvest moon using state-of-the-art telescopes provided by Griffith Observatory.

Event location: 943-951 N. Broadway Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012. For detailed program information, please call (213) 680-0243 or visit: www.chinatownla.com .
