Harrison Ave and Beach St, Chinatown Gateway Arch, Boston, MA 02111 617-350-6303
Description: It's not often that Americans have the chance to participate in a 3,000-year-old cultural tradition, but this August, Chinatown Main Street brings the popular Chinese Moon Festival to Boston for a measure of exotic celebration. With authentic foods, music, and dance, the festival celebrates the harvest moon and is one of the most important holidays on the Chinese calendar. So, grab a mooncake, do the fire dragon dance, and consider it cultural education.
