Asian Lantern Festival headed back to Cleveland Metroparks Zoo this summer


CLEVELAND (WJW) — The Asian Lantern Festival is headed back to the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo for the fourth year this summer.

This time, the popular festival is running July 14 through Sept. 5, the zoo confirmed Tuesday morning, and is set to bring 70 large-scale displays that light up the night. The event runs from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday through Sunday of each scheduled week for walk-through participants. Those who’d like to drive through the illuminated setting can do so on Wednesdays.

“Asian Lantern Festival has become a summer staple in Cleveland, drawing over 150,000 guests each year to experience the wonder of Cleveland Metroparks Zoo after dark,” Cleveland Metroparks Chief Marketing Officer Kelly Manderfield said in a statement.

This year, festival goers can also expect live performances and inspired cuisine.
