The Magic of Lanterns at the Chinese Garden of the Montreal Botanical Garden in Quebec, Canada is a spectacular display with a theme that changes every year.

The lanterns that are displayed each year at the Chinese Garden at the Montreal Botanical Garden in Quebec, Canada feature a festival of magic that explains the different aspects of Chinese culture and legends. Each year the theme changes and the garden is lit and surrounded by a magical aura.

The Chinese have used decorative lanterns for festivals since the Han dynasty and over the years the tradition has continued except that the lanterns are more detailed with a variety of incredible shapes. Some of the lanterns depict fables, animals that are symbolic to the Chinese, historic events that have taken place or they represent famous legendary figures.

Hundreds of lanterns adorn the Chinese Garden and each one is designed in Montreal and then they are hand made with silk by extremely talented artists in Shanghai. After they have been completed, a boat brings them from Shanghai to the garden where they are lit to make this festival one that people will never forget. ... continue below the picture...
