Back in April, Al and I wanted to check out LanternAsia at the Norfolk Botanical Garden for ourselves. We had heard rave reviews and seen the advertisements everywhere. It was the first exhibition of its kind to come to Norfolk and the Garden – and it was completely worth it! It was so popular that it was decided that the exhibit would be extended for an extra week, in time for Mother’s Day. By that week, nearly 90,000 visitors had come to see the mix of art and magic.
We journeyed out to the Garden around 4:00 p.m. on an unseasonably chilly April afternoon. I’m glad we bought our tickets online. It wasn’t packed, but we knew it would be by nightfall.
Art by day.
Magic by night.
I was in awe. I’m so glad we saw the exhibit during the day and at night. It was such a festive atmosphere. Traditional music played throughout, and different countries in Asia were represented. The information platforms were great.
I’ll have these, and the rest of my photos, in a Facebook album later today. It was an amazing experience!
Until the next headline, Laura Beth 🙂
