I love Christmas lights. I have so many fond memories of late night drives as a kid looking at all the lovely light displays. Last year we added a new kind of light display to our yearly tradition and this year we went back for more. The Ohio Chinese Lantern Festival. These breathtaking lanterns are nothing short of magical. The things they are able to create are amazing and you and your family will enjoy every single display. Even if you went last year to the Ohio Chinese Lantern Festival this years display is different with all new characters, animals and wonders. Last year we went on a night that was bitterly cold and that meant my kids were not able to sit through the whole show. This year they had the show inside and my kids sat enthralled for all 40 minutes. We saw contortionists, the Face Changer ( a favorite of ours), Tibetan dance, Mongolian dance and more.
The Ohio Chinese Lantern Festival is a must see event here in Columbus, Ohio. Gather the family, all ages and head out for a night of magical light displays. The Festival runs November 17-January 7 and is open nightly from 5:30-10pm. Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for kids or get a family pack of 4 for $40. Parking is $6 and the festival is located on the fair grounds at the Expo Center. Food and various souvenirs are available for purchase while at the festival and all shows are included in the ticket price.
Thank you to the Ohio Chinese Lantern Festival for providing my family with tickets, all opinions are my own.
