Description

Those searching for a different way of celebrating the Christmas season should definitely check the Giant Lantern Festival. The interplay of light and color, the rhythm of a brass band to which it moves and sheer size of the giant lanterns make for one special event. The lanterns are the outcome of the meticulous work of the locals who invest a lot of time, energy and creativity in creating those wonderful pieces of art. Although the festival is anchored to the long tradition of making lanterns, its current version combines both traditional and modern materials. The event is always held the Saturday before Christmas eve.
