OUR PICKS:
The Minnesota China Friendship Garden Society has organized a day of activities on Saturday by Lake Phalen, culminating in a traditional mid-autumn moon festival, mooncake testing and model catwalk demonstration in the early evening.
Events will begin at 9:45 a.m. at the St. Paul-Changsha China Friendship Garden’s Xiang Jiang pavilion, which is a replica of Changsha’s famous Aiwan Pavilion. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own picnic lunch, a chair or blanket for seating, and cultural or festive attire.
The Minnesota China Friendship Garden Society will dedicate a Hmong Plaza, unveil nine art stones and launch “phase two” of a community engagement process around the future of the garden and pavilion, which was erected in 2018 with the help of designers, engineers and laborers from Changsha, a St. Paul sister-city for some 30 years. There will also be a poetry reading.

The Mid-Autumn Moon Festival Celebration begins at 4:30 p.m. and for a $5 registration fee includes a display of traditional Chinese performance attire, mooncake testing, songs, music, a catwalk and photos. For more information, visit mnchinagarden.org.
