Marco Polo Davao celebrates Mid-Autumn/ Mooncake Festival at the city’s premier Cantonese restaurant Lotus Court attended by Filipino-Chinese community together with their family and friends. 

This year, Marco Polo Hotels offers a selection of unique mooncake gift boxes, each containing delectable and traditional mooncakes. The custom-crafted gift boxes are available with disposable cutleries including the popular Piccolo Kids Club mini mooncake box specially designed for the little VIPs. Flavors for the mooncake include Low-sugar Lotus Seed and Red bean paste.

The special dinner buffet included some of Lotus Court’s signature dishes like seafood delight and specialty dimsum as well as lechon—a Filipino all-time favorite for festivals.

The Mid-Autumn festival is an annual celebration of harvest usually held on the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar with the full moon at its roundest and brightest. It is believed that the full moon is a symbol of peace, prosperity and reunion of families. During this day, mooncakes are served or given as gift to demonstrate goodwill and prosperity.

The evening was made livelier by cultural performances from students of Colegio de San Ignacio.

We also got to try mooncakes given as a gift to express goodwill and prosperity. Here's the happy faces of Mommy Verna and me after the event. Thank you Marco Polo Davao for inviting us.
