NC Chinese Lantern Festival | Koka Booth Amphitheatre | Special Events | Indy Week

NC Chinese Lantern Festival 

When: Through Jan. 14, 2018, 6-10 p.m.
Price: $10-$15

The soul-crushing depression that comes with the early onset of darkness after daylight saving time kicks in can find some relief in the wondrous colors of the annual North Carolina Chinese Lantern Festival in Cary. For the duration of the holiday season, the grounds of Koka Booth Amphitheatre will be transformed into a magical realm of radiance, with huge lantern creatures contrasting pitch blackness with the warm comforts of dreamlike imagery and childhood imagination. As you wander about the grounds, you'll see giant swans gliding across the water, amber-lit pagodas towering over your head, and other giant, smiling animals lighting your way down wooded paths. And there are acrobats, musicians, and other performers at the amphitheater itself. The festival is perfect for kids, or for the kid in you. —Zack Smith
