The Wild - Chinese Lantern Festival

The Huntsville Botanical Garden’s, The Wild - Chinese Lantern Festival, is a luminescent safari filled with Chinese culture. This event is great for all ages and occasions, whether it’s a family outing, date, group of friends, or solo.

The Chinese Lantern Festival introduces Chinese culture with Kung Fu and Shadow Puppet performances, in addition to a Chinese Market. Hear a brief history of Kung Fu before watching experts display their skills. Witness an old Chinese tale during the Shadow Puppet Show under a tent filled with Chinese market vendors and take a little culture home with you.

Make sure to explore the garden and witness a path filled with beautiful animal-, insect-, dinosaur-, and flower-shaped lanterns. The journey is about 1.5 to 2 miles in length, so there’s plenty of time to stroll, take pictures, and enjoy. This event will be happening until May 19th, so there’s still plenty of time to check out this great Huntsville event. Shout out to some amazing local vendors as well: Regale Cupcakery and a rotation of food trucks (Pearl Asian Cuisine,  Beast Mode, Golden Year Ice Cream, Highway Kabobery, Badd Newz BBQ, and Piled High Grill).
