The Chinese Lantern Festival Will Light up the Night at the Pomona Fairplex November 15, 2018 – January 6, 2019


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.  Enjoy Asian and American cuisine, while shopping the craft marketplace where authentic Chinese jewelry, artifacts, dough figurines, as well as Chinese embroidery art, sugar art, paper-cut and fabric art will be available for purchase.

  1. I love reaading your blogs!! reading your blogs is like me living vicariously through you 😂 i’d love to bring my sister and her boyfriend because she’s been wanting to check this out! i’m definitely going to forward this blog post to her


  2. I would love to take my husband, my son and my sister. I am always looking for new experiences to introduce to my son to. I love experiencing everything through his eyes. 😍


  3. I would take my hubby, daughter, and my mom! My daughter and my mom would thoroughly love this! My husband will most likely enjoy it too esp because it’s family time!


  4. I’ve never heard of this event before! Thank you so much for sharing Jenielle! You always find the best family activities! I would love to take my two kids and my hubby. He has NEVER been to California! My kids are 1/4 Chinese and it’s my constant life goal to share Chinese heritage with them as much as possible! ❤️


  5. My daughter just turned 6 Months old and she is obsessed with anything that lights up. Would love to take her along with my mom and brother. Would be a great family adventure.


  6. I would take my two teen girls and husband. Time flies by so fast! Not babies no more and want to be able to spend every picosecond with them before they go off on their own. Days are counting down but I say seconds. One day they ask for the littlest things next thing you know they doing it all on their own. Time is precious
