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.
The event opens to the public on Friday, October 12 and is expected to run until Sunday, January 6, 2019.
No physical images of the event or its construction have been captured as of yet, however, the following renderings can be found on the Chuan Sheng Media website.
Admission for adults costs $22.95, children and seniors can enter for $14.95, and children under the age of two can enter free of charge.
Season passes and special event passes are also available.
According to the website, the festival will also have a number of themed celebrations and parties.
Among the list of events are a “magical photo night,” a Halloween Music Costume Party, a Remembrance Night, a Christmas Party, and a New Year’s Eve Celebration.
Also mentioned on their website are a “Dragon World” theme and a “Sea World” theme.
Daily Hive has reached out to event organizers for more details.
This event should not be confused for the Vancouver Chinese Lantern Festival that was held at the PNE between December 2017 and January 2018. That event will return for its second year at the PNE starting on February 1, 2019.
