Join us at Portland’s favorite Lunar New Year nighttime event! Lan Su welcomes the Year of the Tiger with eight evenings of traditional lantern viewings, when the garden glows with hanging red lanterns illuminating sweeping roof lines and Lake Zither reflects the lights of dragon and phoenix lantern sculptures.
The lantern viewing evenings at Lan Su was inspired by the Lantern Festival, or Yuan Xian Jie, as part of Chinese New Year traditions. The festival day falls on the fifteenth and the last day of Chinese New Year celebration. This is the time for family reunions under the glowing lanterns.
Highlights of the evening include a 50-ft illuminated dragon procession throughout the garden with Portland Lee’s Association Dragon & Lion Dance Team, and an 18-ft phoenix lantern sculpture. Don’t forget to test your finding skills with our family activity – Hidden Tigers mobile scavenger hunt! Finally, enjoy the magic of lantern viewing with a nice cup of tea and snacks at the Garden Teahouse.
