Recap Mid-Autumn Festival Party:

明 月照华夏,金风传友情。  这是十月七日大纽约华夏中秋联欢会的主题,也是这一盛会的写照。新朋旧友,在新的校园济济一堂,共庆佳节。在聚餐会上,四百余男女老少或与友邻把话叙旧, 或同家人共享午餐,或徜徉于近百条灯谜前领略着精神食粮的魅力,熙熙攘攘的人群,处处洋溢着节日的热闹。一点三十分,两位年轻主持人专业水准的开幕词拉开 了舞台演出的序幕,中国传统乐器,西洋乐器,交相奏响;绚烂亮丽的音乐舞蹈剧,热情奔放的队列舞,各呈异彩;孩子的小合唱,成人的四重唱,此起彼伏;短洁 的三句半,高亢的诗朗诵,各具千秋;童声稚气的儿歌,刚武矫健的武术,并茂齐秀。少儿的静夜思,爷爷奶奶的夕阳红,更是烘托着老少同堂,阖家欢乐的节日气氛。 大家相聚在华夏,大家祝福在中秋。让我们感谢所有志愿者所做出的努力,让我们共同祝愿年年有今日,岁岁有今朝。请点击这里浏览联欢会照片

On October 7, 2012, Huaxia Chinese School at Greater New York held a spectacular mid-autumn celebration party. Friends, old or new, all gathered on the new campus to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival, the day symbolizing harmony and reunion.   During lunch time, over four hundred people sat together with families, greeted friends nearby. Many walked along the one-hundred-riddle corridors to enjoy the pleasure and challenge embedded in this Chinese cultural tradition.  Children were excited when they solved riddles and got prizes. At 1:30pm, two young hosts, with their professional opening statement, announced the start of the stage performance.  In the next one hour and half, with the accompanying Chinese and Western instruments, the captivating musical, the energetic line dancing, the concise three sentences plus half, the eloquent poem recital, the lively Rhymes from kindergarteners and the sentimental ballads from the grandparents, fifteen programs constituted fifteen chapters of a holiday symphony. On this day, under one roof on our new campus, young and senior, shared the same happiness amid festivities.  Please click here for pictures of the party.
