Cabramatta Moon Festival

A lantern parade led by a moon goddess, a dancing lion and a cornucopia of international food stalls are all planned for Cabramatta's 2018 Moon Festival. The traditional event, which has been celebrated across South East Asian communities for thousands of years, marks the spring equinox — one of two days in the year when day and night are of equal length — and the coming of harvest season.

Head to Cabramatta from 9am on Sunday, September 23, to join the free festivities, where you'll be in the company of more than 90,000 revellers. In between feasting to your heart's content, look out for live music, dancers, theatrical performances and a bunch of fun, food-related happenings, including a prawn-peeling competition, a chopstick challenge and a moon cake-eating championship. Moon cakes are round pastries filled with lotus seeds, red beans, orange peel and a yellow "yolk" that represents the moon.

You can expect frivolities to finish up around 8pm, with an epic fireworks display.
