People from many cultures around the world celebrate harvest festivals.
Many harvest festivals are in the fall.
Some Asian countries celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival.
It is on the 15th day of the 8th month of the Chinese lunar calendar.
It is at the time when rice is harvested.
At that time, the moon is very bright.
Families gather together. They share a big meal and admire the moon.
People in Britain celebrate the harvest in September.
The harvest festival is a time to give thanks for a good harvest.
After farmers finish the harvest, they enjoy a big meal at home with their families.
Then they play games to celebrate the end of the harvest.
People also decorate churches with baskets of fruit and food.
Later the church gives these to poor people.
Not all harvest festivals are in autumn.
The Chanthaburi Fruit Fair is in Thailand. It happens during the summer fruit harvest.

There are art shows and produce contests, too.
