Lantern Festival Exhibition 2008 Richmond B.C.

The Lantern Festival is a Chinese festival celebrated on the fifteenth day of the first month in the lunar year in the Chinese calendar. It is not to be confused with the Mid-Autumn Festival, which is also sometimes known as the "Lantern Festival" in locations such as Singapore, and Malaysia. During the Lantern Festival, children go out at night to temples carrying rabbit-shaped lanterns and solve riddles on the lanterns . It officially ends Chinese New year.

However, the exhibition I went to is for the celebration of Mid-Autumn festival. You will see images of large scale lanterns that are quite fascinating. Enjoy.
