This weekend is the last chance to experience the Winter Lantern Festival at Lerner Town Square in Tysons, VA! The extravaganza of lights has been running since the holiday season, showcasing its illuminated artistry through the Chinese New Year and beyond.
Over 1,000 handmade Chinese lanterns are on view in the form of all kinds of animals, plus Chinese myths, legends, and zodiacs. There are also interactive elements like light swings, see-saws, and tunnels that let you get in on the action. And, of course, there are photo ops galore!
This Friday, Saturday, and Sunday are the final evenings the festival is open. Reserve your tickets here!

This post is sponsored by the Winter Lantern Festival, however, I only promote events, programs, and places that I genuinely believe in and/or think would appeal to KFDC readers.
While most of the enchanting light displays that illuminated the holiday season have closed, one is still here… The Winter Lantern Festival, which made its DC area debut in December, is still welcoming visitors on weekends, offering a brilliant way to celebrate the Chinese New Year and enjoy the luminous works of art a little longer.
