History of the Chinese Lantern Festival
The origins of the Chinese Lantern Festival date back some 2,000 years ago when Buddhist monks of the Eastern Han Dynasty would light lanterns in their temples. Traditionally, these lights mark the end of the Chinese New Year and are said to represent the process of letting go of the past and celebrating new beginnings.
The Zigong Lantern Group aims to bring this tradition of storytelling and sharing of culture to the streets of Miami. They are the worldwide leaders of Chinese Lantern Festivals, showcasing their festival in over 16 foreign countries and more than 200 regions throughout China.
