On Friday evening, the MU Confucius Institute is inviting people to Mizzou Peace Park in Columbia for the annual Moon Festival.
Also known as the Mid-Autumn Festival, this event allows families to watch the full moon and be thankful for the harvest. People are invited to bring lawn chairs or blankets and a picnic while they enjoy a performance of Chinese dance and music. The evening will end with shared moon cakes under the full moon.
The event, celebrated with the Columbia Friends of China and the Mid-Missouri Chinese Association, is from 6-8 p.m. Friday.
