This is a past event.

Chinese Lantern Festival 

When: Nov. 25-Jan. 15 2017
Price: $10-$15

Driving around neighborhoods looking for displays of holiday lights may be a thing of the past, or at least you may think so after visiting the N.C. Chinese Lantern Festival. This holiday spectacular comes back for its second year to celebrate the Chinese New Year with people of all backgrounds. The festival is a couple of weeks early, given that Chinese New Year is actually January 28, but if you drive down to Koka Booth Amphitheatre in the coming weeks, you can feast your eyes upon a fiery Chinese dragon, a pair of intricately detailed swans, and a forest of trees with Santa and Frosty in the middle. More than twenty LED displays will illuminate the woods surrounding Symphony Lake. While many of these works of art were shipped overseas from China, others were crafted on site by Chinese artisans. To top it all off, the festival will host cultural performances and sell artisan crafts. Can you get any more magical than that? Erica Johnson
