An international lantern festival is coming to Metro Vancouver next week and it’s looking to dazzle, impress, and mesmerize anyone who pays a visit.

Taking place at the Cloverdale Millennium Amphitheatre Park and dubbed “the Art of Lights,” the 2018 Surrey International Lantern Festival is a large-scale cultural celebration.

The event is hosted by the Canadian Sichuan Chamber of Commerce and organized by the Chuan Sheng Media Group, who are calling the event the biggest light event in Surrey.
