Manama, Kingdom of Bahrain, 13th September 2016: Bahrain has been home to a vibrant Chinese community for decades. Right from the many exotic Chinese restaurants, ethnic antique shops and Chinese motoring brands, elements of this fine culture are deeply rooted in this island.

September and October are known to be months of celebration for the Chinese folk all over the world because of the many important festivals that fall during the time. As part of its efforts to showcase the true spirit of Chinese festivity, in the Kingdom, Dragon City is set to host a series of exciting events.

The Mid-Autumn Festival, also known as the Moon Festival is celebrated on the 15th day of the 8th month according to the Chinese lunar calendar, a time when the moon is at its roundest and brightest. It is the second grandest festival after the Spring Festival in China. It’s an important day reserved for family gatherings, prayers and thanksgiving and a staple delicacy during this festival is the Moon Cake which comes in various flavours, according to the region.

You can also celebrate this grand festival with friends and family at Dragon City on September 15 and take the opportunity to savour a moon cake right here in Bahrain. While there, enjoy a day of retail therapy with the family.

Dragon City will also host an exotic Tea-Art exhibition from September 22-24 to mark this important month in the Chinese calendar. The Chinese tea culture is world renowned, and tea brewing and drinking in China symbolises showing respect, expressing gratitude and coming together with family. Discover this interesting Chinese tradition, only at Bahrain’s largest Chinese market!

Honouring the occasion of the 67th National Day of China on 1st October, Dragon City is privileged to host an exquisite art gallery set-up featuring stunning paintings by several Chinese artists. It will be held from October 1-3 in collaboration with the Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities and the Chinese Embassy and sponsored by Diyar Al Muharraq. The gallery will be on display at the Art Center, near the National Museum.

Shopping at Dragon City will be a rewarding experience this year with shoppers having the fantastic opportunity to win exciting prizes in the form of cars, right until the end of the year.
