Lantern Festival 2020 at Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa
February 22: Bring the entire family to enjoy Pacific Symphony’s annual Lantern Festival, celebrating the Year of the Rat!
The Lantern Festival, which can be traced back 2,000 years, takes place 15 days after the Lunar New Year—on the first full moon night in the lunar calendar—and marks the return of spring, representing the reunion of family. The act of lighting and appreciating lanterns is a way for people to let go of the burdens of their old selves and express their best wishes for themselves and their families for the future.
