Chinese lanterns will glow for four months beginning November 15, 2019 at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens, illuminating America’s oldest garden at night for the first time in its history!
Magnolia Plantation and Gardens has partnered with the Zigong Lantern Group in China to present “Lights of Magnolia: Reflections of a Cultural Exchange.” The lantern festival will feature custom-designed installations of large-scale thematically unified lanterns, a fusion of historic Chinese cultural symbols and images that represent the flora and fauna of Magnolia.
The company’s hand-made, three-dimensional sculptures will be illuminated at night throughout the gardens from November 15, 2019 to March 15, 2020. Magnolia will open its gates during the evening to allow guests to view the colorful lantern displays across nine acres of Romantic-style gardens.
