MARCO POLO DAVAO CELEBRATES MID-AUTUMN FESTIVAL

Marco Polo Davao, the first and only premier hotel in Mindanao, celebrated Mid-Autumn Festival on Sept. 15.  The Mid-Autumn festival or the Mooncake Festival is an annual celebration of our Chinese brothers and sisters in honor of good harvest, good fortune and reunion of families.

Mooncake Day is usually celebrated on the 15th of the 8th month of the lunar calendar when the full moon is at its roundest and brightest. Chinese tradition says that the full moon is a symbol of peace and prosperity.
