Charlotte’s Chinese Lantern Festival

Before the craziness of fall photography season started, we headed to the Chinese Lantern Festival at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden, just outside of Charlotte, one Friday evening.

We arrived right before sunset and took a lap around the gardens to see the display before it got dark. Another lap was had after it was dark to see everything glowing. A light show in it’s own personality, it did get me ready for the holidays. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to rush through fall. I will keep fall a little longer.

My favorite spots were the jelly fish, tulips and alligators. Two of which had a lot of pink. Hmm. Imagine that. 🙂

The show is around for two more weekends…then it’s Christmas time, right?!! 😀
