Chinese Culture Opens Mets-Marlins Baseball Game

Chinese culture lit up Citi Field in Queens, New York, the home of the New York Mets, on a recent evening before a night game against the Miami Marlins.

The annual event, now in its fifth year, featured a Chinese ribbon dance, kung fu and tai chi performances by more than 200 participants.

The pre-game show was created to give baseball fans an insight into China through some of the country’s traditional cultural forms.

The event was hosted to coincide with the Mid-Autumn Festival, which takes place on the 15th day of the eighth month on the Chinese lunar calendar – September 19 this year. The Mid-Autumn Festival is one of the most important holidays in Chinese tradition, as families gather for celebrations that include carrying lanterns, dancing and eating moon cakes.
