The festival features more than 40 massive lantern scenes, each meticulously created by more than 150 artisans who used 120 tons of steel, 150,000 feet of silk, 43,600 LED bulbs, and 500,000 feet of LED strips.
In the Jungle Animalia section, stroll among a menagerie of oversized flora and fauna. From spectacular parrots, flamingos, and butterflies, to a stealthy leopard and elephant, these creatures of light are fantastical complements to the inhabitants of Jungle Island.
Over in the Atlantis installation, gaze up at a towering Neptune, trident in hand, and wander the sunken palaces and marine wonders. The ancient Chinese civilization, marked by its stoic terracotta warriors and intricate dragon tunnels, serves as a bridge to a time of emperors and dynasties.
The journey culminates with a celebration of Latin American legends, where the richness of Mayan culture and the exuberance of Día de los Muertos celebrations are portrayed through a vivid interplay of light and tales.
