2011 Miss Congeniality Phet Tran and 2011 Princess Ashley Yu were invited to be honorary guests for San Francisco Chinatown Moon Festival where they met other wonderful princesses from different pageants.
It was exciting because Phet is from the heart of San Francisco, so she experienced attending this event many times.
Celebrated in Asia for more than 1,000 years, the 21st Annual Autumn Moon Festival will be held in Chinatown on Saturday and Sunday, September 10th and 11th, 2011, beginning with an opening ceremony and parade at 11am.
The “Moon Festival”, as it is popularly known, marks a time to reflect upon the bounty of the summer harvest, the fullness of the moon and the myth of the moon Goddess.
The festival will include a street bazaar, live entertainment, martial arts demonstrations and multiple parades to be held along historic Grant Avenue between California Street and Columbus Avenue until 6pm daily. Over 100,000 people are expected to attend the Moon Festival, a traditional Chinese holiday celebration.
