Get ready, Staten Island: the NYC Winter Lantern Festival is making its debut at the Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden this holiday season! From November 28, 2018 and January 6, 2019, the property’s seven acres will be illuminated by 40 larger-than-life LED light installations. The lantern displays will also be surrounded by live traditional Chinese dance performances, more cultural artworks, and vendors for guests to shop.
This festival was created as the China National Tourist Office’s New York 2018 signature event. It was produced by New York Events & Entertainment and Haitian Culture, and is co-sponsored by Empire Outlets and Snug Harbor.
This year’s Winter Lantern Festival features displays like the Light Tunnel, Wonderland, Sea World, Animal Kingdom, Chinese Lights, Panda Paradise, and Holiday Zone. It’s fun for all ages!
General admission tickets are now on sale for $23 each. Youth (3-12), Senior (65+) and Military tickets are $15 each, and children under 3 years old are free.
