Chinese Lantern Festival 2016: Exploring Philadelphia

Chinese Lantern Festival

For my mother’s birthday last year I took her to the “Chinese Lantern Festival. Taking place at Franklin Square located in the downtown area of Philadelphia, the festival is full of vibrant colors. As well as amazing Chinese sculptures, designs, performances and more.

So since this was my mother’s and I first time going to something like this, I decided to vlog the event as well as take pictures. So below you will see the photos, and the vlog I made using my phone and iPod touch. If you all are wondering what camera I used to take the pictures, it is my canon t5i camera that I got not too long. I was able to use my camera for a few shots before it died and then I had to switch over to my other devices.

So if you all would like to know more about the festival, click here! Other than that talk to you all in another post and have a good day everyone.

It’s fascinating to see how other cities around the world celebrate Asian traditions and cultures (especially as we live in Singapore and are fully immersed in the way of life here), your pictures and vlog makes it all look so beautiful
