Did you miss out if you didn’t get a chance to check out the Chinese Lantern Festival? That’s up to you.

  • Residents are upset that the park was charging admission to the park being that it is usually free to enter
  • It was too expensive for a family of 4 (Roughly $58)
  • Philadelphia is the only northeast city to host this festival
  • The profits were split between the organizer & company that manages the park
  • A handcrafted, three-story-tall pagoda (looks like a house — shown below)
  • The lanterns, along with other props were hand-painted
  • The attraction showcased performances, exhibits, shops and other stuff you’d find at a Chinese Lantern Festival
  • Food & drinks were available for purchase.

Residents seem to forget that when the park is free to enter, it doesn’t have the displays, exhibits, cultural activities and Authentic Chinese Performances. Typically, they don’t get to see much of that unless they’re hallucinating (which still usually costs money). The organizer should consider family package deals if they return next year.
