Lumination at Gilroy Gardens
Similar festivals have been hosted in Toronto, London, Texas, and Florida
The lanterns and light sculpture displays at Gilroy Gardens Family Theme Park have been specially designed and constructed for this unique venue 
The park's gorgeously landscaped gardens, trees, and water features provide the perfect natural backdrop for this splendid celebration of Chinese history and culture

Come see a lot of new and creative attractions:
Porcelain Dragon: A colossal 220-foot-long dragon made up of thousands of porcelain plates, bowls, cups and spoons, all tied together by hand
Temple of Heaven: A stunning reproduction of the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests, part of the 600-year old Temple of Heaven religious complex in southeast Beijing.
Carp Jumping Over the Dragon Gate: Three delightful water displays featuring animated carp leaping over ornate Chinese gates

Chinese Light Sculptures
Each display is composed of hundreds or even thousands of individual pieces
Sculpture materials vary from traditional hand-crafted silk lanterns to porcelain plates and tiny glass bottles filled with colored water
These intricate light sculptures are fascinating by day...and absolutely breathtaking at night!

From Lanterns to Lumination
Today's modern festival of light began with the ancient art of Chinese lantern making in the Han Dynasty (206 B.C. to 220 A.D.)
Lanterns are still built using traditional methods, but also utilize modern materials and technology to create exciting, entirely new experiences
The birthplace of the Lumination exhibit is in Zigong, in the Sichuan province of China, home to the original Chinese Lantern Festival

Terracotta Warriors: Life-size figures inspired by the famous "army" of 8,000 terracotta warriors that guarded the tomb of the 3 rd century B.C. Chinese emperor Qin Shi Huang

Panda Sanctuary: Lovable giant pandas at play in a bamboo forest
