Vancouver’s most magical lantern spectacle of the season is coming to a close.

Le Homes: Lanterns in the Garden, a whimsical folktale-themed light festival, is entering its last weekend at the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden.

Haven’t had a chance to go? On-site lanterns fly into the air and illuminate the night as they illustrate classic myths and stories in Chinese culture.

This is a garden filled with fairy tales, fantasies, and dreams.

The display of lanterns has been specially designed and built for the festival, by artists in China.

The event is part of a celebration that takes place during the YUAN XIAO Festival – marking the end of Chinese New Year celebrations and the first full moon day in the lunar calendar – a tradition dating back to over 2,000 years ago.

There are also activities to create an interactive experience at the garden: riddle-solving, lantern-making, face-painting, calligraphy, sugar painting, as well as live music and a food yard, serving hot, freshly-made Asian delicacies.

The event saw more than 4000 visitors last year and has been increasingly popular this time around. Tickets are on sale online – $15 for adults and $12 for children. The festival is only open for three more days, from March 2 to March 4.
