The Bull takes to the streets to capture the spectacle of the annual harvest moon celebration in Los Angeles’ Chinatown.

With hundreds of attendees, the open event could be heard blocks away with live music and the smell of food filling the air.

Food trucks lined the West side of Central Plaza selling everything from traditional Chinese dishes to new takes on old flavors.

The main stage was crowded throughout the day, displaying many talents including The Los Angeles Children’s Orchestra and Jin Wu Kung Fu.

Though the crowd began to disperse toward the end, the music kept playing and the packed dance floor kept celebrating late into the night.
