The Sweeter Taste of Life

The Magical Chinese Lantern Festival Returns

There is truly nothing more magical than looking at lights during the holidays. That is something my family and I love to do. We find the best places with illuminating entertainment and grab our coats with some hot cocoa and just take the time to admire all the beautiful vibrant lights. That is why we are looking forward to the return of The Chinese Lantern Festival for the holiday season at the Pomona Fairplex.

The Chinese Lantern Festival will feature brand-new illuminated production themed “Blooming Seasons”. Bigger and brighter stunning lanterns, up to 30 feet high, include an 85-foot-wide lantern arch, 100-yard-long breathtaking Ceramic Chinese Dragon, along with ridable “mythical creatures” children’s rides. I know my kids will appreciate that.

Presented by Hanart Culture, the Handcrafted Lantern Display Will Feature Over One Thousand Lanterns Inspired by the Four Seasons, Live Entertainment and Fun for the Whole Family including your photo taken with lantern Santa ClausFolk.

Inspired by the art of Chinese lantern making, dating back 2,000 years ago, guests will experience a vibrant light show with mixed-media lanterns. Throughout the hillside, brilliant lanterns depicting the Amazon Jungle, fruit tree groves, peach blossoms, maple leaves, poppies, cactuses, squirrels, foxes, and more.

Each lantern is made of modern materials and eco-friendly technology with brilliantly-lit colored LED lightbulbs, musical enhancements and sound effects, plus visual moving parts to create larger-than-life imaginative shapes.

The Magical Chinese Lantern Festival will also feature:

Mythical creature rides for children

Food and concessions

Authentic live Chinese folk musical concert

Traditional dance show

Holiday displays

and much more.
