Celebrate Moon Festival & Golden Week!
September 7, 2020
Our annual Moon Festival & Golden Week celebrations will be held this year, however with a few Covid Safe adjustments.
MOON CAKE SALE
WED 23 Sept – FRI 2 OCT
Social distancing restrictions apply
Thai Kee IGA are back with their annual Moon Cake Sale taking place in Centre Court until 2nd October. You will be spoiled for choice with the huge range of unique moon cake flavours on offer – it will be hard to stop at one!
Did you know that moon cakes are round to symbolise the reunion of a family during the Moon Festival? Today, people present moon cakes to relatives and friends to demonstrate that they wish them a long and happy life.
Moon Festival is on Thursday 1st of October and is celebrated largely by the Chinese and Vietnamese people. Traditionally, the festivities pay homage to the moon, as it is at its roundest and brightest, and celebrates the end of Autumn harvest in the northern hemisphere.
VIRTUAL LION DANCE BY Jin Wu Koon
Please note: there will be no live performance due to social distancing
THU 1 – SUN 11 OCT
CENTRE COURT SCREENS
Every 30 minutes
In Chinese culture, Lion Dance performers mimic a lion’s gestures and emotions to bring luck, fortune and prosperity to the places where they perform.
Jin Wu Koon will be brought to life during Golden Week on the Centre Court screens with highlights of their jaw-dropping performances at Market City.
Due to social distancing, we are unable to bring you the live Lion Dance in 2020, but JWK has been gracious in allowing us to display some of the Lion and Dragon costumes used for the dances on Level 1 & 3.
