More Info

Chinese lanterns are coming to Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden this fall! We call these “lanterns”, but make no mistake – these are not hand-held, candle-lit lamps. From humble beginnings of silk and paper, the Chinese lantern has evolved into the wondrous shapes and sizes of the Chinese Lantern Festival. Enter a world of illuminated panda bears, dragons, towering buildings and gates.

Each lantern is made by masters of the craft in Zigong, China’s center of lantern heritage. These custom lanterns will be built into the Garden’s own displays and features. Other lanterns are made of hundreds of small glass medicine bottles filled with colored liquid. Arranged in the shape of dragons, peacocks, and giant pearls, they glimmer like crystal rainbows. Augmenting the lanterns are spectacular works made of Chinese painted porcelain dishes.
