Media release

Stockland Riverton will celebrate the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival with a number of free, family-friendly activities at the centre.

The community is invited to immerse themselves in the energetic allure of the East Asian harvest festival with cultural traditions from Chinese Lion Dancers and Moon Cake cooking workshops to a Dragon Wall Mural and crafts.

Anna Brandsma, Marketing Manager, said that the festivities are a chance for customers to experience a cultural tradition that dates back to 1600 BCE.

“We are proud to be part of such a multicultural community and want to create opportunities that reflect such diversity.

“The Mid-Autumn Moon festival is one way that we can show customers that we listen, we care and we want to curate experiences that add value to their lives.”

The celebrations will kick off on Saturday 14 September at 11am with a Chinese Lion Dance performed by local award-winning group Yaolin Kung Fu Association. The dance will travel through the centre spreading good luck and fortune before completing the performance outside of Big W.

For Stockland’s younger customers, there will be an opportunity to take part in a traditional moon cake cooking workshop and decorate scales to expand a giant 3D Dragon Head Mural located opposite Rockmans.

Customers will also be able to create traditional Asian crafts such as calligraphy, paper cutting and lanterns, led by the talented students of Bannister Creek Primary School and Lynwood Senior High School.

The Mid-Autumn Moon Festival will run at Stockland Riverton on Saturday 14 September from 10am to 2pm.
