Auckland Lantern Festival

Posted on Posted in Event, Photography

Auckland Lantern Festival was pretty amazing. I didn’t expect it to be so packed! It felt like a mini night market to me, with all the food stalls and souvenir stalls. They even had a few game booths too. Pretty cool. I managed to catch a lion dance too, the first lion dance I saw for CNY this year. They weren’t the greatest, but they’re alright. Not many people could see the ‘story’ behind lion dance, which was kind of sad. Anyway, I had great fun last two nights at the festival.

That’s like 1/50 of the crowd.

The fish look so dead, I swear.


They had a Chinese calligraphy booth and I got the lady to write my name. Whee woo. Pointless but hey, I can’t write better than her.. So.. Let me enjoy it a lil’.
