Building on the success of last year's Festival of Lights, the 2016 show will feature over 500 interactive and beautiful silk lanterns. To give you an idea of the size of the event, the festival covers some 10,000 square metres within the picturesque Dandenong Showground in Greaves Reserve.
The family-friendly festival embraces Chinese culture in the form of huge vibrant lanterns, which come to life after dark. Some creations reach as high as 15m and 20m wide, and come in all manner of shapes and sizes.
Enjoy ambient sounds played to complement the visual displays as your meander along the outdoor tree paths, and take in the wonder of this year's Dandenong Festival of Lights.
A festival is not a festival without interactive activities, and there will be plenty. You and your family will have the opportunity to partake in some Kung Fu and drumming workshops, and you can treat yourselves to a dumpling or two from the dumpling bar. For entertainment, there will be live lion costume dancing, synonymous with Chinese festivities.
With plenty to see and do at the Dandenong Festival of Lights 2016 show, this is the perfect opportunity for you and your family to brighten up your Spring. Book online HERE and follow all the latest news on Facebook.
