North Carolina Chinese Lantern Festival-Cary

November 25, 2016 – January 15, 2017 (Every Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday)

Cary's Booth Amphitheatre will once again be transformed into a magnificent setting when the North Carolina Chinese Lantern Festival returns this holiday season! The Festival will include more than 20 all new displays, each one comprised of hundreds of parts and thousands of LED lights. In what proved to be a fan favorite last year, the spectacular Chinese Dragon on Symphony Lake will return to mesmerize visitors.

Each larger than life lantern will once again wow visitors with their amazing craftsmanship, cultural significance and artistic beauty. A new feature this year will be the addition of cultural performance and artisan crafts.
