Chinese Lantern Festival kicks with multicolored art

The Chinese Lantern Festival got off to a multicolored start September 7, hosted this year for the first time by Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens.

CL sent intern Tate Roberts out to shoot some photos of the animals, made from rayon fabric and metal frames, and shipped all the way from China, which is about a 9,000-mile commute. In fact, the elephant statue itself was made from actual China.

But there's more than just lanterns. Here's the full nightly schedule:

5:30 – 9:30 p.m.: Family Activities
5:30 – 9:30 p.m.: Chinese Folk Art Marketplace
6 – 9 p.m.: Food Truck(s)
6 – 6:45 p.m.: Kung Fu Show followed by a Coaching Session
7 – 7:30 p.m.: Shadow Play followed by Backstage Activities
7:45 – 8:30 p.m.: Kung Fu Show followed by a Coaching Session
8:45 – 9:15 p.m.: Shadow Play followed by Backstage Activities

The festival runs every Wednesday through Sunday, from 5:50 to 9:30 p.m. until October 29.
