Chinese Lights…North Carolina style

I got a chance to visit another display of Chinese Lights, a cultural exhibit from China popping up all over the country. This time, the display was in North Carolina’s Daniel Stowe Gardens just outside Gastonia. The gardens themselves are lovely, but the addition of these beautiful silken, illuminated creatures made it a magical experience. I was also fortunate enough to share the evening with a great group of friends which makes everything better!

I also have a post from the Nashville lights, check it out!

Enjoy the photos!
