The Unique Festival In North Carolina That’s Absolutely Mesmerizing

It’s like walking through a fairytale — animals you’d otherwise rarely see sit in their natural habitats, stories are told through the setup, and somehow the darkness of night is the perfect time to view it all. But they’re not regular animals: they’re glowing, bobbing, and wondrously animated. The Chinese Lantern Festival at Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens allows visitors to witness otherworldly attractions. as well as an inside peep at the unique works of masters of the craft.
