Well over 1,000 people attended the Arcadia Chinese Association’s first-ever Moon Festival Saturday evening, Sept. 29. Some estimated the crowd at more than 1,500.
The event staged on a lawn at the Los Angeles County Arboretum featured several hours of entertainment on a stage, where local politicians, including Congresswoman Judy Chu, were also introduced.

The following video highlights were produced by attendee Gib Whitney of Wide Eyed Productions. Following the video are more photographs…
