Various events will be held across Wuxi to celebrate the upcoming Lantern Festival.

The Lantern Festival is on the 15th day of the first month on the Chinese lunar calendar, which falls on Feb 15 this year. Its arrival also marks the end of Spring Festival celebrations.

Tourist attractions such as Huishan Ancient Town, Meili Ancient Town, Lingshan Mountain scenic area, Nianhuawan scenic area, Donglin Academy and Qingming Bridge Historical and Cultural Block will all put up many different shapes and sizes of lanterns.

At night, people can admire the lanterns in the street under the full moon and watch lion and dragon dances, solve Chinese riddles, play games, and eat yuanxiao, small dumpling balls made of glutinous rice flour.

In addition, cultural venues such as the Wuxi Library, Wuxi Museum, and Wuxi Opera Art Center will stage festive events and performances, as well as exhibitions related to the Beijing Winter Olympics.

People can also enjoy a festive atmosphere online via a livestreaming event organized by the local bureau of culture, radio, television and tourism. The livestream will be held from 2 pm to 7 pm and show the events held in the Wuxi Opera Art Center, Yunke Garden, Donglin Academy, Nanchang Street and the Grand Canal.
