Next week, I am taking my family to The Chinese Lantern Festival in Pomona!
This spectacular event will Light up the Night at the Pomona Fairplex November 15, 2018 – January 6, 2019.
The outdoor evening skies will become ablaze with the color and light with more than 1,000 beautifully handcrafted lanterns. The lanterns range in size from 12 – 23 feet tall, and combines art, tradition, and culture. This year’s theme, “The Wild,” features five different locations – America, Oceania, Asia, Antarctica and Africa, with lanterns representing wild animals from each region, including Cheetahs, panda bears, jellyfish, majestic cranes, lions, and even dinosaurs.
The festival will also feature food, Kung Fu shows, animatronic dinosaur rides, demonstrations, and shadow play for the kids. Enjoy Asian and American cuisine, while shopping the craft marketplace where authentic Chinese jewelry, artifacts, dough figurines, as well as Chinese embroidery art, sugar art, paper-cut and fabric art will be available for purchase. www.ChineseLanternFestival.com.
We can hardly wait!
The Lantern Festival is one of China’s most traditional celebrations with the art of Chinese lantern making dating back to the Han Dynasty (206 B.C. – 220 A.D.). “These gorgeous lanterns have evolved through the centuries, from when they were used for lighting, to an art form all their own. Chinese lanterns are a cherished part of festivals and celebrations world-wide and we are proud to bring the Hanart Culture Chinese Lantern Festival to Southern California,” said George Zhao, president of Hanart Culture.
