A celebration of the summer’s harvest and a thanksgiving to the moon, this mid-autumn festival is characterized by bright paper lanterns and mooncakes. Chinatown will shut down along Grant Avenue between California and Broadway, giving way to parades, cultural performances, way more food than you probably need to eat, cooking demos and a Saturday evening storytelling and magic show. The whole thing culminates with Sunday’s White Crane Dragon Parade, a bucket-list must-see for many.
