Cary has one of the largest Chinese populations in North Carolina, as is tacitly celebrated in the first NC Chinese Lantern Festival at Koka Booth Amphitheatre. Lasting for the entire holiday season, the festival finds the outdoor auditorium's invitingly walkable grounds and picturesque lake adorned with more than 20 luminescent displays—they traveled here by ocean liner all the way from China—on an awe-inspiring scale. Rippling dragons, adorable packs of pandas and elegant gabled temples shine in the darkness, evoking the magical views of a quieter, more contemplative state fair. It's a widely inclusive celebration for friends and families of all backgrounds, as it's devoted purely to one thing all the diverse holidays share: a ritualistic reverence for the bonding power of light. 6:3010 p.m. Sun.Thurs.; 6:3011 p.m. Fri.Sat., $12$20, 8003 Regency Parkway, Cary, 919-462-2025, —Brian Howe
