MORE than 90,000 people will head down to Cabramatta on Sunday to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Moon Festival.
From 11am to 8pm, the streets of Cabramatta will be bustling with a range of activities including traditional lion dancing, Vietnamese and Chinese dance performances, martial arts demonstrations and a Glamour World Beauty Fashion Parade.
There will also be competitions focused on food including noodle eating, prawn peeling and moon cake eating, as well as a games tent set up for the youngsters.
Highlights of the event will include a lantern parade led by the moon goddess and appearances by popular children's character Peppa Pig and 2010 MasterChef contestant Alvin Quah. X-Factor stars Three Wishez will also perform.
Butterfly Skye, aka The Bug Lady, who is an entomologist and food scientist, is expected to be a crowd favourite.
She will have her own stall where she will teach visitors how to turn worms, scorpions and even tarantulas into tasty snacks.
In the spirit of the Moon Festival celebrations, a shrine featuring a matchmaker will be set up on the day for those who are seeking love. More than 90 volunteers will help out on the day, to ensure all runs smoothly.
The Cabramatta Moon Festival Shuttle bus will operate from 9am to 8.30pm on an altered route around the event site.
It will stop at Canley Vale Road, St Johns Road, Hill Street, Bartley Street, Cabravale Leisure Centre, Railway Parade, Canley Vale Public School and the corner of Fisher and Broomfield streets.
Visitors are also encouraged to take the train to Cabramatta station, located at the heart of the festival or ride their bike and use the bike parking in Railway Parade.
Every year in early September across south-east Asia, millions of people celebrate the Moon Festival.
The date is determined by the equinox, the day of the year when daylight and darkness are equal in length, this being the 15th day of the eight lunar month.
