Evening Lantern Viewing at Lan Su Chinese Garden
An event every week that begins at 12:00 am on Sunday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until February 5, 2023
Join us at Portland’s favorite Lunar New Year nighttime event! Lan Su welcomes the Year of the Rabbit with several evenings of traditional lantern viewing evenings, when the garden glows with hanging red lanterns illuminating sweeping roof lines and the Lake Zither reflects the lights of large-scale floating lantern sculptures.
The lantern viewing evenings at Lan Su was inspired by the Lantern Festival, or Yuan Xian Jie, as part of Lunar New Year traditions. The festival day falls on the fifteenth and the last day of Lunar New Year celebration. This is the time for family reunions under the glowing lanterns.
Highlights of the evening include a illuminated dragon procession throughout the garden with Portland Lee’s Association Dragon & Lion Dance Team. Don’t forget to test your chopstick skills with our family activity – Year of the Rabbit Chopstick Challenge! Finally, enjoy the magic of lantern viewing with a nice cup of tea and snacks at the Garden Teahouse.
