The outdoor evening skies will become ablaze with the color and light with more than 1,000 beautifully handcrafted lanterns. The lanterns range in size from 12 – 23 feet tall, and combines art, tradition, and culture. This year’s theme, “The Wild,” features five different locations – America, Oceania, Asia, Antarctica and Africa, with lanterns representing wild animals from each region, including cheetahs, panda bears, jellyfish, majestic cranes, lions, and even dinosaurs.
The festival will also feature food, Kung Fu shows, animatronic dinosaur rides, demonstrations, and shadow play for the kids.
