Perhaps you’ve visited Cary’s Koka Booth Amphitheatre for a concert or to explore Symphony Lake and surrounding trails. At this point, you’re probably aware it’s the location for this year’s N.C. Chinese Lantern Festival. Back for a second year, the festival is lighting up the Triangle in a way that hasn’t gone unnoticed.
WRAL documented the behind-the-scenes set-up, and featured the festival in the attractions, entertainment, Go Ask Mom sections, as well as in several Weekend Bests. The lantern festival also debuted in Cary Magazine and on several hyper-local blogs and news sources.
The News & Observer highlighted numbers and interesting facts of the N.C. Chinese Lantern Festival and Localpov said it was a must-see event.
The festival is a unique cultural experience, the kind that requires a visit to truly capture its essence. Yet, if you need further convincing, you can see what everyone else is raving about by searching #NCChineseLanternFestival on Instagram or Twitter.
The touring festival, produced by Tianyu Arts & Culture, Inc., will wrap up 2016 and continue into the New Year thanks to the Town of Cary’s Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources Department.
You can hear what the Town of Cary’s Lyman Collins has to say about it in this appearance on ABC 11 News. We’ll have more updates come January!
