Giant silk lanterns to adorn Fort Worth Botanic Garden
More than 20 handcrafted, larger-than-life silk lanterns will light up the Fort Worth Botanic Garden with gorgeous colors beginning March 9.
The show will run 6-10 p.m. daily March 9-31. After March 31, the shows will be Thursdays through Sundays until May 12. (There may be blackout dates to avoid conflicts with other previously scheduled events, so check the Botanic Garden’s webpage first.)
Lantern festivals are a central part of Chinese culture that dates back thousands of years. The ancient tradition comes to Fort Worth featuring lanterns crafted from silk, wire, and steel. The event offers visitors the opportunity to experience an event rarely staged outside of Asia.
