View Comments ()



    Thousands are expected to attend the Autumn Moon Festival in San Francisco's Chinatown.

    Thousands of people are expected Sunday for one of Chinatown's biggest events in San Francisco, the Autumn Moon Festival.

    The event is held along Grant Avenue between California and Columbus.

    The Autumn Moon Festival has been celebrated for more than 1,000 years in Asia. Some describe it as Chinese Thanksgiving and marks a time to reflect upon the bounty of the summer harvest--and the full  moon.

    The festival runs from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. tomorrow.
