Chinese lantern festival comes to Jungle Island

MIAMI (AP) — Jungle Island is hosting a Chinese lantern festival for the rest of the year.

A news release says it’s opening Luminosa to the public this Saturday.

The 18-acre park is located near downtown Miami. It has partnered with Zigong Lantern Group and China Lantern International to create a nighttime jungle filled with giant illuminated lanterns made from colorful silk by Chinese artisans.

Luminosa features lanterns shaped into animals, flowers and iconic Miami destinations. More than 1 million LED lights are used in the attraction.

Luminosa will run from 5-10 p.m. daily until Jan. 8. Regular adult admission is $35.
