Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams was the host of the Chinese Autumn Moon Festival at Brooklyn Bridge Park on Saturday. The annual festival gives thanks for the mid-autumn harvest of rice and wheat.
The event included cultural performances, booths, a children’s lantern parade, and traditional food, including moon cakes and a whole roasted pig, which was given the ceremonial first chop by BP Adams.
The event brought Chinese and Americans together for a nice day out.
