A CHINESE LANTERN FESTIVAL – what a sight to behold! (“This canopy of 15,000 lights transition us from cacophony to tranquility”)
A must-see special exhibit at the Tampa, Florida zoo. My sister and I were amazed, with eyes glued to the extraordinary displays of thousands of lanterns, elephants, flowers, Koi fish and temples so exquisitely designed and displayed.
Forty Chinese artists conceptualized, designed and erected this magnificent exhibit, which is hard to describe in words. Such bright colors illuminated in the paths, waterways and bridges of the zoo. As the sun set and darkness prevailed, we experienced a blaze of red, gold, green and purple.
So serene and calm. Visitors whispered. Ooos and aaaahs heard around every corner.So much history and culture. The calmness reminded me of Tai Chi, being in the moment and feeling balance.
Although I cannot do it justice, I want to share some of the “Zoominations” experience with you. And, if you are in Tampa by May 31st, do not miss it.!
