The Autumn Moon Festival held at the Santa Clara County Fairgrounds on Saturday, September 22, 2012 was a big success thanks to the countless families who brought their loved ones out for this fun-filled community event. The celebration ended with the lantern lighting at night as families gathered in the main field to wrap up the festive Tet Trung Thu.
Miss Vietnam of Northern California had a wonderful time contributing to the various entertainment activities, such as MC-ing and announcing the winner for the Sinh Viên Phục Vụ Và Xây Dựng Cộng Đồng contest and participating in Tuong Khue’s Ao Dai fashion show. The Sinh Viên Phục Vụ Và Xây Dựng Cộng Đồng contest featured 6 talented finalists from various high schools around the Bay Area with Sophia Nguyen winning the grand prize. Check out the candidates’ video submission for the talent portion! We would also like to thank the various models who volunteered their time and efforts to make the show possible. Special thanks to Christie Nguyen, Kimberly Ma, Ngoc Le, Gin, Brigette Valencia, Yasmin, Jessica Le, Carla, and Genie Lam! Here’s a recap of the whole day’s festivities (fast forward to 7:16 minute to check out the fashion show!).
