Children attending the festival are invited to play folk games and kites, try their hands at making traditional masks and to he (toy figurines), and fun water puppetry shows.

In addition, historians and artisans will be invited to the festival to hold discussions on topics such as paper toys, heritage education and environmental protection.

A space will be set up to display photos and documents showing how people in the past celebrated the Mid-autumn festival.

Last year’s Mid-autumn Festival attracted more than 18,000 children to the site.

The event is one of a series of programs hosted by the Thang Long – Hanoi Heritage Conservation Center over recent years to popularize heritage education among students.

In 2017 alone, such programs benefited more than 2,600 secondary students and 1,300 elementary students in Hanoi.
