This Lantern Festival In Arkansas Is Downright Dazzling. Don’t Miss It.
Springtime keeps teasing its arrival in Arkansas. One way to welcome its upcoming arrival is at Wildwood Park for the Arts in Little Rock. Each year, the park hosts a lantern festival in honor of the first full moon of the Lunar New Year. Part educational culture fest and part luminary celebration, the 10th Annual Lanterns Festival is a fun event the whole family can enjoy.
The Lanterns Festival will be this weekend, March 2nd-4th, 2018.
