Stemming from the traditional Chinese New Year celebrations of the Western Han Dynasty (206 BC-CE 25), the Lantern Festival, also known as, the Spring Lantern Festival is a Chinese festival celebrated on the fifteenth day of the first month in the lunar Chinese calendar, marking the final day of the traditional Chinese New Year celebrations. Over time, it has become the most popular festival and night event in China. As technology improved, we now use electricity to illuminate the lanterns while using the same traditional lantern making skill. There are many themes that can be used, such as animals, plants, sea world, Chinese culture, international architecture, outer space, history, ancient stories, and more. Besides a walk among beautiful lanterns, there are many more elements can be added, including performances, dinosaur rides, lantern playgrounds, authentic food booths, cultural exhibits, and more. All the festival activities offer endless fun!

This is every child’s favorite part in the festival! We produce a variety of dinosaur exhibit materials, including animatronics dinosaurs, dinosaur models, fossil replicas, and more. These products are exported to several countries for amusement parks, zoo exhibits, traveling displays, and more.
traditional Chinese handcrafts
We offer traditional Chinese handicrafts at our lantern festivals. This is a cultural component that showcases the lifestyle and history of China’s people. Some displays are unique to the lantern festival and can’t be found elsewhere. Some of our traditional craft offerings include sugar painting, name painting, inner bottle painting, and hand drawing. The ancient art of sugar painting includes painting opera figures, flowers, and animals with sugar. The end result is both edible and ornamental. Name painting combines calligraphy with vivid imagery. It looks like a painting but is actually a beautiful display of someone’s name. Inner bottle painting, also known as painting snuff bottles, involves painting beautiful figures inside transparent glass bottles. Hand drawing uses colored pens to decorate traditional Chinese cultural elements like lanterns, paper fans, and umbrellas. All of these artistic processes are cultural experiences in their own right.
