Looking for a unique holiday adventure to enjoy with the whole family? The Winter Lantern Festival, an interactive, family-friendly experience is now aglow in the DMV area. Paying homage to the culture and craftsmanship of traditional Chinese lantern festivals, the luminous night-walk contains shimmering tunnels, charming characters, glowing swings and see-saws, and more!
Showcasing over 1,000 lanterns, the Winter Lantern Festival will wow you with its larger-than-life creations. The meticulously crafted lanterns have come to life using traditional Chinese silk cloth through the work of skilled artisans – some with over 20 years of experience.
But that’s not it! Along with the colorful displays, the Winter Lantern Festival offers up engaging activities that will delight the little ones, like a bounce house and sugar paintings. Located about an hour and a half from Richmond within Lerner Town Square at Tysons II, the experience is conveniently situated right by Tysons Corner Center (holiday shopping, anyone?).
Now open to the public at Tysons II, the Winter Lantern Festival is not one to miss. Tickets begin at $22, and a variety of discounts are available for seniors, groups and families.
