Lantern Festival

I went to the Lantern Festival last night - it's held at the end of Chinese New Year celebrations, and every year, the lanterns seem to get more beautiful. I took lots of photos - here are a few.

Eva, I think it's a traditional thing to do at Chinese New Year, but the festival does it on a really big scale.
