The Mid-Autumn Festival is one of the most important holidays in East Asia, also known as the Moon Festival or Tết Trung Thu in Vietnam. Traditionally, this holiday will take place every year on the first full moon after the fall equinox. In Vietnam, the festival focuses mainly on the children and is all about spending precious time with family.
Preparations for the joyful season begin weeks in advance as stalls begin offering moon cakes, sold in a variety of flavors from sweet red bean paste to savory roast pork. Many households make offerings to the God of Earth and children go door-to-door carrying lanterns and performing lion dances.
This year, the event which was hosted by The Vietnamese-American Community of Las Vegas, a non-profit organization, was a huge success. Our attorney, Mr. Mike H. T. Nguyen, has been serving as the chairman of this organization since 2015. He and the board members have spent countless hours in making this event happen for the children. Over 400 families came to celebrate and enjoy free mooncakes, lanterns, and entertainment.
May you enjoy the bright and happy Mid-Autumn Festival with your loved ones and create beautiful memories for life. – from the Nguyen & Associates team.
