Mythical beasts, creatures of the night and spiritual beings march in a moment of collective moon worship for Melbourne.

The moon’s phases mark the river’s swell; the opening and closing of underworld gates; and times of harvest and celebration.

Parade for the Moon is a sporadic, bi-nightly, 30-person parade by artists Jason Phu, Nabilah Nordin, James Nguyen and Veisinia Tonga—a parade of spirits, dragons, loud drums and animals marching in tribute to the moon.

Performers sporting extravagant costumes made by local community groups weave in and out of Golden Square and Chinatown, in recognition of the moon worship and symbolism prevalent in Melbourne’s myriad cultures.
