Chinese Lantern Festival Returns to Cary

Take a holiday stroll through a light-filled wonderland, as the North Carolina Chinese Lantern Festival returns to Cary, beginning Nov. 22.

Held at Koka Booth Amphitheatre, the festival will include more than 20 displays, each one comprised of hundreds of parts and thousands of LED lights.

“This is a great opportunity for citizens of Cary and beyond to experience a breathtaking holiday event unlike any they have seen before,” said Doug McRainey, director of Cary’s Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources Department.

“The vivid colors and bright lights are amplified not only by the layout and walkways of the amphitheater, but also by the reflections that are created by the adjacent Symphony Lake.”

Fan favorite the Chinese Dragon on Symphony Lake will return this year, with each larger-than-life lantern featuring amazing craftsmanship, cultural significance and artistic beauty.

The festival will also include cultural performances and arts and crafts activities. Concessions will be available.

The North Carolina Chinese Lantern Festival runs through Jan. 12, 2020.
