GBRCNY Lantern Festival

  • Cairns Chinese Friendship Garden Greenslopes Street Edge Hill, QLD, 4870 Australia (map)

The Lantern Festival is a Chinese festival celebrated on the fifteenth day and marks the final day of the traditional Chinese New Year celebrations.

The Lantern Festival will see revellers join together to create a sea of wishing lanterns for an unforgettable spectacle. There will be Lion & Dragon performers and music.  Write your new year wish on the lanterns provided,  with your highest hopes, deepest regrets, and fondest dreams.

This will be a visual spectacle as the sun goes down and the lake lights up.

Lanterns can be purchased on the night from the CADCAI Merchandise tent.
