Last week we celebrated the Moon Festival by taking a trip to Chinatown.
We waited for the Streetcar and talked about how we were headed to Chinatown to celebrate the Moon festival. It was extra exciting because 4/6 of us say they have never been there before. We learned that our stop was going to be Spadina.
We got to Chinatown and checked out the elderly woman's cool Chinese vegetables.
We saw some very interesting fruits from Asia that we touched and smelled.
We headed down to the market to pay for some fruit we picked out and to find some moon cake.
But first! We explored the back of the store that had so many amazing sea creatures to admire.
We found a nice spot to eat our celebratory Pomelo (its round like the moon) and took turns peeling its thick, thick skin. We also listened to the story of the moon festival and a nice lady taught us how to say Happy Moon Festival in Manderin. We also tried some Dragon Fruit for the first time and loved it.
We ended our day by sharing some moon cake and chasing squirrels in the park.
