Long Description:
The Lantern Festival, as celebrated in China, is a tradition that dates back to the Han dynasty (206 B.C.-220 A.D.), the second and the longest dynasty in Imperial China. This year at the Montréal Botanical Garden, a carefully designed, subtle lighting has been added to the Japanese Garden in addition to the Chinese Garden lanterns.

Le festival des lanternes, tel que célébré en Chine, est une tradition millénaire qui remonte jusqu'à la Dynastie des Han. Au Jardin de Chine du Jardin botanique de Montréal, près de 1 000 lanternes, dessinées à la main à Montréal et fabriquées en Chine, illuminent le jardin de couleurs vives.

Cette année, en plus de célébrer le 20e anniversaire de La Magie des lanternes au Jardin de Chine, les visiteurs découvriront pour la première fois un Jardin japonais magnifié par une mise en lumière fine et subtile.

Le festival se tiendra du 7 septembre au 4 novembre et pour l'occasion, le Jardin botanique demeurera ouvert jusqu'à 21 h tous les soirs.
