Dragon Lights Festival at Rancho San Rafael Regional Park

Dragon Lights Festival at Rancho San Rafael Regional Park.

The Dragon Lights Festival is being held at Rancho San Rafael Regional Park – a featured event of this year’s Artown. The five-week exhibition has run June 30 until August 5th nightly, starting at 7:00 pm.

Dragon Lights Reno Festival features 39 illuminated Chinese lantern displays, crafted by Chinese artisans. Nightly performances, crafts, a time traveler photo booth and various food and beverages will also be featured. Guided tours begin each night at 7:30 pm with “Magic Hour” occurring at sundown – each lantern is illuminated one-by-one as its history is read aloud. Special theme nights will also be occurring on every Friday and Saturday night throughout the festival.

Nightly featured performances include face changing, contortionist, Chinese Yo-Yo and more. Popular Chinese handicraft demonstrations will also be featured, including name painting, crystal engraving, and aluminum weaving.
