Hundreds of lanterns will illuminate the night, including a four-hundred-foot Dragon. A team of eighty Chinese artisans need three months to complete our hand-crafted lanterns, which are made from sculpted steel frames and hundreds of pieces of silky cloth. Other lantern themes include global architecture, creatures of the land and sea, and mythical stories.”
