(September 28, 2012) The theme of the 126th Annual State Fair of Texas is “Big & Bright” and this year a Chinese Lantern Festival will glow in the sky over the Lagoon at Fair Park.
The ancient Chinese tradition will be a dynamic display featuring pandas, flamingos and even a 110-yard long dragon made from 15,000 porcelain dishes tied together by hand. At night, the festival lights up from within to illuminate the night.
“Most people think Chinese lanterns and envision small paper lanterns,” said Errol McKoy, president of the State Fair of Texas said in a news release. “Fair-goers will be amazed when they see that these lanterns are anything but that. They are large, beautiful, colorful structures that will light up the fairgrounds. The festival will be a cultural destination at this year’s State Fair of Texas.” NBC News
