Asian Lantern Festival returns to Cleveland Metroparks Zoo in July
The Asian Lantern Festival is returning to Cleveland Metroparks Zoo for the fifth year beginning Wednesday, July 6.
This year’s festival will feature live performances every hour featuring acrobatics including foot juggling, contortion, and more. Performances will be held nightly at 6:45, 7:45, 8:45, and 9:45 p.m. Each performance will total approximately 15 to 20 minutes.
Throughout the three-day-long festival, guests can taste a variety of culturally-inspired cuisine including local Cleveland favorites at the Asian Food Market.
