Chinese New Year Lantern Viewing


Traditional lantern viewings close out Chinese New Year festivities, when the garden glows with hanging red lanterns illuminating sweeping roof lines and the lake reflects the light of large illuminated lantern sculptures including a 20 ft dragon! A dragon procession and performances by local community partners are all a part of these special evenings.
