The Chinese Lantern Festival
Admittedly, I am a little nuts about seeing lit up Chinese lanterns.
Every year, at about this time, I literally ache to attend The Chinese New Year Parade in San Francisco - but even I have to admit that my rationale for traveling over 1.700 miles to attend a parade - is a little weak.
OK, call me
obsessed interested by all things Asian.
When I heard The Chinese Lantern Festival was in town, I was all over it.
At Dallas' Fair Park, it continues until February 17th.
|The Main Entrance|
|The Imperial Dragon Boat|
|The Porcelain Pagoda|
|Over 52 feet high|
|Built entirely from porcelain plates, cups, saucers, spoons and bowls|
|The 'Wish' Tree|
|Write your wish and attach to the tree...the wind will carry it to the Gods|
For this year, anyway.
