Yes?
Oh! Fun. :D
Can't wait!
Horde, too? YUS! ;) This sounds fun.
This sounds awesome!
This sounds awesome!! I can't wait!
We have some great ideas brewing for this. Mixing IRL traditions with in-game lore. Should be very exciting!
cool
Food. Shows. Festival. I love all those things. Expect me there.
We've been getting together traditional foods, stories, and other fun things. Getting excited! ^_^

A reminder that one item suggested to get for this event is the Sky Lantern companion pet (https://www.wowhead.com/item=104332/sky-lantern). You can buy one on Timeless Isle, Pandaria for 7,500 timeless coins. Note, there is a cheaper one, but it isn't permanent and tends to be bugged.

This is an easy grind for any players over level 90. While not required to attend the event, the effect will be better if your toon gets to light a sky lantern along with the other attendees. If you don't get this lantern, we suggest having the Lunar or Festival Lantern at least. ;)
*bump*
My Pandaren will be there with his soup bowl and a lantern.
I'll be out of town but I'll bring my laptop with me, so I might be late. Probably. A good chance I'll late. Actually I don't know. Might have to spend time with the family.
