We've been checking this out and thought it'd be a great event! Let's get together and check out the Lantern Light Festival. Here's a brief description from their site:
The Lantern Light festival is a celebration of Chinese culture featuring massive lanterns, inspiring performances, and incredible cuisine. Each Chinese lantern is custom-built by Chinese artisans. The lanterns appear to be three-dimensional stained glass, and are handmade from hundreds of pieces of silky cloth. Some are over 30 feet high and others are up to 300 feet long.
You can buy tickets in advance or at the gate. It's $23. We will plan to meet at the front gate at 5pm.
