Yuyuan lanterns were illuminated during the French Yuyuan Garden Lantern Festival in Paris, France, Dec. 13, 2023. The exhibition will span 72 days, covering the Christmas holiday to the Lantern Festival, which is 15 days after the first day of Chinese New Year.
Yuyuan Garden, a classical garden complete with Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) dynasty-style buildings in downtown Shanghai, has been holding the most popular lantern shows annually in Shanghai for the past 28 years. The Yuyuan Garden Lantern Show will be part of the celebration of the 60th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and France in 2024, which is also the China-France Year of Culture and Tourism.
