Uptown Moon Festival

A reader sent in the photo above with this description:

I thought you might be interested in a picture from Tet Trung Thu (tet-troong-thoo), the Vietnamese mid-autumn moon festival which was celebrated in Uptown this evening. Uptown’s streets were filled with joy as children and their caregivers paraded down Sheridan and through the Argyle and Kenmore area carrying beautiful colored lanterns. Motorists stopped to watch while others came out onto their balconies to wave and see the two dancing dragons perform to the drumbeat.


  1. Hi! Thanks for reporting on the festival. FYI, the Mid-Autumn Festival is celebrated by Chinese people in addition to Vietnamese!
