Montreal Chinese lanterns 2015 montreal Chinese lanterns

Each year the Montreal Botanic Gardens features a new and renown festival of lanterns, based on a theme, in their Chinese garden (the largest outside of China).   Lanterns are designed the previous year in Montreal, fabricated from silk in China, then shipped over and assembled for the festival that runs during September and October. The Magic of Lanterns theme changes yearly, this year showcasing some legends and customs of the Chinese New Year celebrations.  Find out more on the gardens website.
