Event Details

It’s the Fairplex, Pomona, CA’s biggest exhibit to date! Boasting more than 1,000 illuminated lantern displays of wildlife from around the world (and dinosaurs!), this festival offers a stunning visual exhibition of Chinese art and culture.

Let the wonders of illuminated animals guide you through the Lantern Festival. As you visit each location, the animals change and transport guests to experience from through the world.

Each lantern is fashioned by masters from Zigong, China, the center of the country’s lantern heritage, using a tradition that extends back centuries. The lanterns are created using steel frames surrounded by colorful rayon “skins” and illuminated from within by LED lights. Additional mosaic-like displays are formed with small glass medicine bottles filled with brightly colored liquid to create dragons, peacocks and giant pearls that glimmer and sparkle in the crisp fall air.

Witness cheetahs, jumping koi fish, majestic cranes and travel back in time with our dinosaurs. Travel the world by walking through America, Oceania, Asia, Antarctica, and Africa.
