Welcome to the wonderful world of LumiNight: a walking safari through scenes from our magical planet revealed by immersive life-sized, and larger-than-life lantern sculptures created by Chinese artisans. More than your average Chinese lantern festival, LumiNight brings you One World. A Million Lights. A unique celebration of our planet’s most treasured wonders, wildlife, and nature that includes a Forest of a Million Lights, dinosaurs, Chinese Zodiac animals, the Great Barrier Reef, the story of Noah’s Ark, and animals both extinct and endangered.
Hundreds of large- scale internally lit creatures act as guides through the festival of lights that dazzle and kindle the imagination. The layout is accompanied by an educational, interactive app and spans 8 acres and will make you feel as if you are up close with the wildlife first-hand. The awe-inspiring night out is infused with an educational messages for all ages. The LumiNight Lantern Festival is a beautiful and wholesome way to honor wildlife and reminds us all that we have a responsibility to do our best on behalf of every animal on Earth. This is more than just a festival, but a reintroduction to the majesty of wildlife through art, awe, illumination.
