The Chinese Lanterns at Fair Park showcases some of best lanterns in the world. It's a Chinese tradition that these lanterns are lit 15 days after the start of the new year. This lighting dates back over 2000 years as people believe that they bring good luck and reject evil spirits. The exhibit at Fair Park ends Feb 17th.
