Festive Lanterns Lighten Up Night Tour in BMC


Recently, a night tour event for families commenced at the Central Green Forest Park. Festive lanterns from Zigong, the hometown of Chinese festive lanterns, marked the start of this featured night tour in Beijing Municipal Administrative Center (BMC). It is worth mentioning that Zigong Lantern Festival has long been part of the national intangible cultural heritage  of China.

The event covers an area of about 60,000 square meters, centered around the Dynamic Insect Valley. Through a combination of sound, light, and electricity, it allows visitors to enter a fantastic wonderland of insects. Other featured areas have also been opened, focusing on themes like "China-Chic Goddess", "Minions Kingdom", and "Underwater World".

These magical lantern sets are crafted by hundreds of intangible cultural heritage inheritors from Zigong City in Sichuan Province, which is reputed as the "Lantern City in Southern China".

The event will run until July 8, lasting for 30 days. Children under one meter in height can enter for free, and so can seniors over 80 years old with their valid ID presented.
