The Kansas University Center for East Asian Studies will have its annual Moon Viewing Party later this month.
Attendees will gather from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 30, in the courtyard of the Lied Center on KU’s West Campus.
The event is part of the traditional Asian Mid-Autumn Festival. Attendees will watch as the moon rises; hear poetry readings in Chinese, Japanese and Korean; and listen to background music performed by the Kansas City Chinese Music Ensemble, which features traditional Chinese instruments.
They will also be served moon cakes, traditional desserts filled with red bean paste, pineapple or nuts.
In the event of rain, the event will be moved inside the Lied Center.
