MORE than 200 people of all ages took part in a Chinese mid-autumn Harvest Moon Festival event in Glasgow.

From children to the elderly, they were welcomed to the afternoon of Chinese and Asian themed entertainment and food.

The Glasgow Chinese Recreation Association put on the multi-cultural event with Chinese fan dances, Indian dances, a Scottish piper and tai chi and Chinese music entertaining those attending.

The festival was hosted at Keppoch Campus in Possilpark together with housing association ng Homes.

Possilpark and north Glasgow has a growing Chinese population integrating into the local community.

Andy Cheung, President of the Chinese Recreation Association, welcomed the guests which included many local people from Possilpark and community representatives.

Labour MP Paul Sweeney, Councillor, Anne McTaggart and SNP MSP Bob Doris also attended as guests.

The festival celebrates the gathering of family and friends and it is said that the moon is the brightest and roundest on this day which means family reunion.

It is also a time to give thanks for the harvest and for harmonious unions.
