The Asian Lantern Festival is coming back to Cleveland this summer, the Metroparks Zoo announced today.
Taking over parks and zoos across the country, the traveling Asian Lantern Festival shows off thousands of colorful handmade paper lanterns in open, green spaces. This year's Cleveland edition, which runs June 20 through July 28, brings 40 brand new light up displays. The event also includes authentic bites from local spots Li Wah, King Wah, Thai Thai, an interactive zone, open air market and live performances.
Running after zoo hours, the lantern exhibit is only open Thursday through Sunday from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Same-day tickets are $20.50 each, or you can score four tickets for $60. Kids 2 and younger are free. Those purchasing tickets early can score a discount.
