Chinese Lantern Festival - Town of Cary NC

The Triangle’s most spectacular holiday tradition is back! Cary’s Koka Booth Amphitheatre will once again serve as the home of the North Carolina Chinese Lantern Festival when it returns this winter for an 7th year. The renderings have been approved and Chinese artisans are busy crafting more than 40 all new displays, each one comprised of hundreds of parts, and thousands of LED lights. These larger-than-life lanterns will captivate visitors with their amazing craftsmanship and artistic beauty. Cultural arts performances will take place each night on the main stage.

North Carolina’s ‘must see’ event will not disappoint.”
