Chinese Lantern Festival at Fair Park

Posted on 19 Nov 2012 at 6:31am

The Chinese Lantern Festival featured at the State Fair is back through Jan. 6.

Marvel at the Chinese Lantern Festival — a dreamscape of illuminated animals, buildings, and myths, now through Jan. 6 at historic Fair Park.

The artful pieces that make up the Chinese Lantern Festival are a collection of lanterns made of silky cloth, glass, and porcelain. Among the exhibition’s 22 lantern sets are giant pandas, lotus flowers, and a porcelain dragon stretching 330 feet, made from 15,000 bowls, spoons, and wine cups…all tied together by hand.

DEETS: Fair Park. 5 –10 p.m. Mon.–Wed. $14. Thurs.–Sun. $19. Parking $15.
