Chinese Lantern Festival

The Chinese Lantern Festival has returned to Dallas after a successful first year! Join us and marvel at these stunningly beautiful displays of art! This year's event features 17 new scenes, an acrobat show, crafts, and both Chinese & Western food options.

An exhibit specialist will be available to speak with us about how the lanterns are designed, made, and assembled. This talk will likely be in Mandarin. So, if you are a native Mandarin speaker with advanced English skills or a native English speaker with advanced Mandarin skills, this is a perfect opportunity to practice translations! Let us know if you are interested in getting involved in this way.

If there are at least 20 people in our group, we will pay the discounted group rate: $15/person (a $7/person savings!). Please bring $15 in cash, since we will need to pay for all the tickets at the same time.

Parking: Fair Park Gate #5, off of Grand Avenue in Dallas, Texas.
There may be a fee (around $15) to park, so you might consider car-pooling.

We will meet at the front entrance (look for someone holding up a sign for our group). Please arrive by 6:30pm.

Because this is an outdoor event with electrical equipment, in the event of bad weather, a rain date will be scheduled. Not sure if we're still on? Check this posting for updated information. (We will only post if it has been cancelled.)

Hope to see you all there!

    Last call for the Groupon discount tickets. If anyone else would like to get the discount through the Groupon deal (since we will not have enough people attending to receive the group discount at the gate), be sure to grab it before midnight tonight. (See the link Norman posted below.)

    If you decide not to use the discount, you can still purchase a regular ticket at the entry gate. See you Friday at 6:30pm!

    Yiye Yuan - I'm happy to share it with you. Thanks! :)

    October 23, 2013

    • Yiye

      Cool!

      October 23, 2013

  • Yiye

    I got one groupon - entry for 2. Anyone want to share this with me?

    October 23, 2013

  • Stacy

    Good find, Norman! Thanks for the "unpaid advertisement." lol It looks like the deal is 32% off of two, four, or six people. As of right now, there are 8 people planning on attending. If two people can secure the tickets for us on Groupon today, perhaps each person could obtain 4 tickets each?

    I'm not familiar with Groupon, unfortunately. Who has a Groupon account that wouldn't mind securing these cheaper tickets for us?

    We'll make sure you get reimbursed when everyone arrives at the Festival. Suggestion - Before you purchase the 4 tickets, post on this link so that everyone can check up on the status (and we don't wind up with more tickets than happy Festival-goers). ;)

    The good news is...the weather is supposed to be beautiful on Friday! Looking forward to spending the evening with you fine folks!

  • Yiye

    So who is / is not getting the groupon? Same deal but we wont need 20 ppl which looks like we won't get. Should we work out pairs or...

    October 22, 2013

    • norman

      I think that's a good idea. Better figure it out fast as I think theres only another day left on groupon.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
