Step into a dazzling world of light with over 1000 Chinese lanterns; all handmade by artisans with decades of experience. A whimsical walk-through experience to light up and warm up the holiday season!
Experience the Magic
Winter Lantern Festival’s unique luminescent nightwalk brings the culture and craftsmanship of traditional Chinese lantern festivals, where contribution is celebration!
Tradition Brought to Life
Modern LED lights are embellished by traditionally hand-crafted lantern frames made from small pieces of classically made Chinese silk cloth and steel wire. All lanterns are created by artisans, some of which have over 20 years of experience in their trade and bring magical folklorical creatures to life.
Each unique piece holds a story of its own that will be told to visitors to help contextualize their experience even more.
This event runs from November 17, 2023 – January 7, 2024; Fridays through Sundays,
from 5pm – 9:30pm. The extended holiday schedule is from December 22, 2023 to January 1, 2024 daily from 5pm – 9:30pm.
