Chinese New Year Lantern Viewing

Chinese New Year Lantern Viewing

A traditional lantern viewing closes out Chinese New Year festivities on the evenings of March 2, 3, 4, and 5, when the garden glows with 150 hanging red lanterns and the lake reflects the light of 250 floating lanterns. A dragon procession and special performances are all a part of these special evenings.
