lantern-making workshop for parade goers to build their own unique paper lantern to use as they walk with the Festival of Lights procession. On the day of the celebration, there is a carnival like parade filled with stilt walkers, fire breathers, giant puppets, and costumes of many eclectic images. At the end of the procession, an enormous sculpture is set a blaze to say good-bye to the old year as the celebration continues into the wee hours of the night.
