2015 MOON FESTIVAL CELEBRATION

Come celebrate the Moon Festival with Monk Wise Saturday October 3rd and Szechuan Gardens.  Located on 8576 S. 1300 E. in Sandy.

 

Come celebrate the Chinese Moon Festival with Monk Wise. The Moon Festival has many reasons to be. In ancient times it was to celebrate the abundance of food from the fall harvest. There was also a general who had the idea of making a cake, shaped like the moon, for his soldiers since the moon was large and mighty.

In the Ming dynasty secret messages were hidden in moon cakes to coordinate attacks and to plan secret meetings to overthrow the government.

In Mongolia there is also a similar festival. They will ride their horses heading west and do so until the sun comes up. It Tibet the children will chase the moon in the river. It is also celebrated in Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Korea, Japan, Cambodia, and Vietnam.

Monk Wise will celebrate the Moon Festival by eating delicious food, visiting with classmates and friends, games, cultural exchange, and of course some martial arts.  We Can't wait to see you there!
