We had a Taekwondo demonstration from one of our recent regional medal winners that everyone thoroughly enjoyed!
The festival, also known as the Moon Festival as it is held annually at the event of the full moon between September and October, is the second most important festival in the Vietnamese calendar after Tet, the New Year Celebration.
Traditionally the festival celebrates the three concepts of gathering, thanksgiving and devotion but in recent times it is more an occasion for people to get together and have a good time with a song and a dance.
Children carry brightly coloured lanterns in procession and Moon Cakes - traditional cakes made with flour and egg and filled with lotus or red bean paste - are given as gifts. Our Children were delighted to receive their gifts!
The moon festival also coincided with the super moon, making it an extra super special celebration!
