Chinese Lantern Festival
Fair Park Dallas
by: Bobby McDonald
You won't be able to see "Big Tex" after he burned on Friday morning. However, the Chinese Lantern Festival is a "must see" display at this year's State Fair of Texas, that ends on Sunday, October 21st. And, if you can't find the time to go over the weekend, negotiations are underway to leave the exhibit until January 1st, and the crowds will be much, much lighter for viewing the awesome creations. The exhibit is best viewed at night and features over twenty displays that are made of welded frames and covered in silk, that are illuminated at 7:00 p.m.
Thousands of man-hours went into creating the exhibit, with over 70% of it created in the parking lots adjacent to Fair Park.
Admission price is $19.00 for adults.
Enjoy these photos of the awesome exhibit (keep in mind that everything is made of metal covered in silk, with exception to the dragon made of china plates, and the fu dogs made of tiny bottle filled with colored liquid):
"A Truly Awesome Exhibit!!!!"
