Chinese Lantern Festival Atlanta

Let the NYE countdown begin! I decided that I want to stay home this New Years Eve but I still had a little bit of the holiday itch left so I wanted to do one last outing before ringing in the new year. In celebration of Centennial Olympic Park's 20th anniversary the city of Atlanta has hosted a number of events around town this year including the Chinese Lantern Festival. The fest travels around the world and showcases beautiful illuminated, handcrafted decorative lanterns, enriched with Chinese culture.

If the fest didn't make it's way to your city - no worries, I've got you covered. I wanted to share a few photos I took last night. If you're in Atlanta I highly recommend making a trip downtown to experience it for yourself. The fest will run everyday from now through January 15, 2017. They also have mini shopping booths, refreshments and live entertainment. It was super cold and windy out so be sure to bundle up! Let me know if you decide to go ^_^
