Chinese Lantern Festival will be held 02 Mar 2018 in Beijing, China.
Chinese Lantern Festival has been celebrated for more than 2,000 years on the 15th day of the first month of the lunar calendar. Lantern Festival is the first significant feast after Spring Festival, so called because the most important activity during the night of the event is watching various wonderful Chinese lanterns. And because every household eats yuanxiao (a rice ball stuffed with different fillings) on that day, it is called Yuan Xiao Festival. For its rich and colorful activities, it is regarded as the most recreational among all the Chinese festivals and a day for appreciating the bright full moon, and family reunion. There will be a variety of clowns, stilt walkers, acrobats, floats and parades, music and drums and of course the Chinese Lion and Dragon Dances and firecrackers. Children carry their lanterns around the village and families come together to eat sweet rice balls for good fortune and family unity. In modern times, the festival is sometimes referred to as Chinese Valentine's Day because of the opportunity it gave young girls and boys to go out in the evening. Chinese Lantern Festival is an event and I like events...
