Vision Times are proud sponsors of Fairfield Council’s Cabramatta Moon Festival for 2018.
Colourful lion dancers, showstopping stage performances and a smorgasbord of delicious food – the Cabramatta Moon Festival celebrated its 20th year in style.
More than 90,000 visitors flocked to Cabramatta and its iconic Freedom Plaza on Sunday for a day of family fun, cultural celebrations and a gastronomical journey across south east Asia.
Festivities were officially opened by NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian and Fairfield City Mayor Frank Carbone. Also in attendance was NSW Multicultural Minister Ray Williams and the Member for Fowler, Chris Hayes.
Vietnamese pop sensation Minh Tuyet and popular children’s entertainers PJ Masks lived up to their top billing, drawing huge crowds to their performances.
For the first time ever, the Cabramatta Moon Festival turned up the excitement of the lion dance to a whole new level with lion dancers on stilts.
Visitors also flocked to the 20 carnival rides – the most ever hosted at the Moon Festival – as well as the traditional lion dance and children’s lantern parades, and the prawn peeling, noodle and moon cake eating and the children’s chopstick challenges.
Festivities closed at 8pm with a massive fireworks display.
