Chinese Lantern & Folk Festival at Fountain Hills

Fountain Park will be lit up like a New Year’s Celebration, or should we say a Chinese New Year’s celebration, as Fountain Hills welcomes the Chinese Lantern & Folk Festival at Fountain Hills!  For the first time in Arizona, Fountain Hills, in partnership with the Universal Cultural Organization, will host a lantern display like none other!  Designed, built, and shipped across the world, China has created a unique and impressive lantern display for all to enjoy.  For ten days, Fountain Hills will display beautifully designed 40-60 foot lanterns in Fountain Park.  This show coincides with the Chinese New Year celebrations for the Year of the Horse, creating the perfect atmosphere for dozens of large, richly-colored and illuminated silk displays in the shape of animals, characters, flora and angels.  In addition to the lantern displays, the festival will also include cultural dancing, martial arts demonstrations, music, children’s games crafts and great food.
