Chinatown was filled with lots of people and vendors celebrating the 20th annual Mid-Autumn Moon Festival in San Francisco Sept. 18 and 19. The event is the most important next to the Chinese New Year.

I walked with two of my friends through the swarms of people. We stopped at various earring and trinket stands, and observed the multiple large tents setup by corporations like Safeway, Wal-Mart and Comcast. I interviewed congressman John Dennis, who was there to get his name out to the Chinatown residents. Locals and tourists alike were all enjoying the dancing dragons and drums.
