CARY, N.C. (WTVD) -- The doors are open for this year's Chinese Lantern Festival at Cary's Koka Booth Amphitheatre.
This is the festival's 8th year in the Triangle and organizers say this year is unlike any other festival.
"We've added another week to the event. That way you have more time to come visit us. We've added more menu items. We've added some commemorative apparel," William Lewis said, who is the cultural arts manager in Cary.
Chinese artisans have crafted more than 40 all new displays, each one comprised of hundreds of parts, and thousands of LED lights.
The festival runs from November 17 to January 14. Tickets are now on sale.
ABC11 is once again a proud sponsor of the festival.
