A Moon Festival celebration party was held in our community by the community management company. Two small shows included Chinese musical instrument performance and puppy show were performed on two side platforms. Singing and dancing shows were performed in the cetral garden's main stage. Vendors selling small crafts and food were lined up on the sidewalk. In the end there was a big and long firwork show.
It was our first moon festival in China. Winston liked to listen to the music played by traditional Chinese instruments. He asked me the difference between Violin and Er-Hu (二胡). Richy told him Violin has 4 strings and ER-Hu has only 2 strings. The two instruments are very similar. It was interesting that some of the music came out directly from the Disc , not by the performers. We knew it because when the players stopped, the music went on. The audience seemed fine with it. We had to think that the spirit of this show was to bring up the heat and the feeling of the festival, not to show the quality of music. However on the main stage, every performance was a real and good paly. But we did not watch the show in the main stage, because it was too crowded and loud.
