The Winter Lantern Festival creates a  dazzling world of light, featuring 1,000 Chinese lanterns, all handmade by artisans with decades of experience! This special wonderland includes lanterns that depict Chinese myths, legends, and zodiacs, as well as the world of ice with displays of mammoths, polar bears, and penguins. Plus, enjoy interactive light swings, see-saws, and tunnels, too — all photo-worthy opportunities!

The fun happens at Lerner Town Square in Tysons, VA (adjacent to Tysons Galleria), on select nights, from December 16, 2022-February 12, 2023.
