Chihuly Exhibit and Chinese Lantern Festival Extended Through Holidays


It’s been a busy morning of announcements. Lighted exhibits at both the Dallas Arboretum and at Fair Park have been extended. Originally slated to end November 5, the Chihuly exhibit at the Dallas Arboretum will be extended through December 31. The gardens will be open for Chihuly Nights from 6–9 pm Monday through Wednesday evenings and each night from December 26–30. The dramatic glass sculptures – made by renowned artist Dale Chihuly and installed at 15 locations throughout the arboretum – are even more breathtaking at night. Visit

Over at Fair Park, the Chinese Lantern Festival, an elaborate nightscape over the lagoon, will reopen on November 1 for display through January 6, 2013. The festival, which had previously ended with the close of the State Fair on October 21, will be open nightly from 5–10pm. If you didn’t make it there during the fair, this is your chance to see the peacocks, flamingos, a 50-foot pagoda and a giant dragon as well as cattle and bluebonnets. Visit and note that tickets for kids 4–12 on Monday through Wednesday are half price until December 1.
