Book a hostel in Boston for a Chinese celebration
The US is not necessarily the first place that might spring to mind when thinking about a Chinese celebration.

But the August Moon festival is set to take place on August 15th in the American city, so booking a hostel in Boston would be a good idea for those who are interested in the event.

There will be an array of activities on show such as Chinese dough art and vendor booths, as well as Chinese opera.

Those who are keen on various culinary delicacies will be sure to find some at the event which occurs between 10:00 and 17:00 local time.

Reserving a Boston hostel in Chinatown could be useful for people who want to be on the doorstep of the extravaganza and it could be somewhere worth taking kids to because there is children's Chinese folk dancing included on the bill.

And the youngsters may also be intrigued by the lion dances and martial arts performances that are set to wow crowds.

A similar event - the Chinatown Main Street Festival - took place in the city yesterday and the organisers have added the opera attraction to the August show.

The mayor of the city of Boston Thomas Menino said the area has a lot of offer residents and visitors.

He added: "One often hears that Boston is a city rich in tradition, actually Boston is a city rich in many traditions. Chinatown remains the focal point of the Asian community in Boston and for all of New England."
