An incredible display of lights, acrobatics and cultural exchange, “Dragon Lights Albuquerque,” formerly known as the New Mexico Chinese lantern Festival returns to the Duke City.
It’s returning to New Mexico at EXPO New Mexico. With more than 15,000 LED lights, the event will highlight the U.S. tour debut of “Temple of Heaven,” a three-story tall ancient temple lantern, an enormous 40-foot-long dragon lantern, and 25 oversized Chinese-themed lanterns.
The festival will also showcase Chinese dancers and acrobats in two nightly shows and three-weekend shows featuring face-changing performances, contortion acts, and Chinese Yo-Yo presentations.
Dragon Lights Albuquerque will also feature authentic handcraft demonstrations including inner-bottle painting, traditional Chinese calligraphy and crystal engraving.
Attendees can enjoy traditional Asian and American cuisine along with fair food and a beer garden for adults.
The event starts Oct. 5 and runs through Dec. 2.
