Every year on the fifteenth day of the eighth month of the lunar calendar, when the moon is at its maximum brightness for the entire year, the Chinese celebrate "zhong qiu jie." Children are told the story of the moon fairy living in a crystal palace, who comes out to dance on the moon's shadowed surface. The legend surrounding the "lady living in the moon" dates back to ancient times.
Virtual Asia will join the fun of this traditional Asian celebration this year with many entertaining and interesting events hosted here in the city .
The fun will start Sept 30th with The Moon Festival cart sale that will run until Oct 14th. This cart sale will feature exclusive designer items for $99L and less as well as other great goodies from over 20 of SL's most talented designers.
The Chinese celebrate The Moon Festival with special mooncakes, that are regarded as an indispensable delicacy. Mooncakes are offered between friends or at family gatherings while celebrating the festival. For the duration of the cart sale there will be a Virtual Asia Mooncake hunt. Guest will be guided around the city hunting for these special treats stuffed with special gifts from participating designers all over the city.
Sept 30th is also the day the Chinese will celebrate the official zhong qiu jie festival . We will have many great events here in the city including live music, fan dancing, contest and fireworks!!
We look forward to celebrating The Moon Festival this year with our Virtual Asia friends and family.
