    I am a big fan of the Chinese Lantern Festival, I attended the last time it was held at Ontario Place in Toronto Ontario.
    Can you tell me if it will be ever returning again to Ontario Place in Toronto?

    I’m very glad that you saw my design in the last year 2008, I have to say Chinese Lantern Festival has not any plan held in the Toronto Ontario Place again, because somebody who want to copy the Chinese Lantern Festival in the Ontario Place blew it in Greater Vancouver.

    The Chinese Lantern Festival involves many Government Factors, it can’t run very good without the Government support. If I have any information about the Chinese Lantern Festival will hold again in the Ontario Place, I will give you a message, thank you for your visit.

    Ni Hao Chen,

    My name is Mark Smith and I am a wheat farmer in Fort Benton, Montana in the United States. Three years ago we adopted our daughter from Wuyishan in Fujian Province. She is a blessing to us. It is our sincere desire that our daughter have an appreciation and understanding of her rich and beautiful Chinese culture. It is mu understanding that Foshan is famous for its lanterns.

    I would like to have a Lunar New Year parade in our small town. I need the following items and was wondering if you could help me?

    I am looking for lanterns that businesses can hang in their windows. I am looking for lanterns that people can hold while they walk in the parade. I am also looking for some lanterns of fish, dragons, phoenix and other such items.

    Also, do you know of any companies that can provide me or donate to me a nine person dragon for the parade? I am interested in Lion dance costumes as well.

    I hope that you can help me make my dream come true for my daughter.

    Xie Xie,

    Mark Smith

    Hello Dear Mark

    The lanterns you need which shaped like dragon and fish need for custom generally.

    For example the Lantern Festival company in other country can not provide lanterns to individual, because to make each lantern must invited many professional lantern craftsmen, each lantern is unique crafts, the costs is very high, each lantern company is for the benefit, they can’t cost high price to make it and send it to you. ( Even if they give the lanterns to you, the lanterns will damaged in transit for they damages easily)

    I think it’s not a good idea to try to get them from the lantern festival company. But there have 3 ways to get them.

    1. Contact the Chinatown of your country which is near your home to look for the lantern craftsmen, and ask the craftsmen who is in your country help you. ( No carriage expense, I think it’s the better way to get the lanterns you need)

    2. Buy it from the B2C website ( But most of them need you buy lots of lanterns, and as the production line, the lanterns may not look very beautiful and unique)

    3. Contact the sponsor who is holding the Chinese Lantern Festival recently in your country for help ( According to my own experience, when the Lantern Festival exhibition is over, all the lantern will be destroyed, you may cost little price to get some of them, if you are lucky enough, it’s the best way)

    I hope the 3 tips can help you, please feel free to contact me at anytime.

  7. Mark Smith says:

    Hello Chen,

    Thank you very much for your help. You have given me some excellent information. I was afraid that I wouldn’t be able to get a Foshan style lantern in the shape of a fish or dragon… I was hoping for a small version that a person could hold and walk with.

    One of the problems that I have is that I live 1200 kilometers from the nearest Chinatown.

    I do like your idea about getting the lanterns following Lantern Festival. I will check into B2C as well.

    Many thanks,

    I was reading through the Lantern festival webiste and was just wondering what the demographic of lantern festival participants is made up of? Is it mainly primary school children? Young adults? The senior?
    In your opinion what is the best way to promote the festival to the community as well as a multicultural community such as Melbourne Australia?

  9. Risa Harada says:

    Hi Canas

    The mainly demographic is Chinese who is living near the holding place or in this Country, the second is Photographer, they can promote more local foreigners join Chinese Lantern Festival.

    To hold a large scale Lantern Festival need the government‘s help, selecting a good region where has enough Chinese people, adequate funding and preparation.

  11. Gan Chau says:

    dear site owner:
    I would like to know about the paper material you used for iron wire modeling (paperhanging)… is it waterproof? how do u shape it? or is it only water proofed after colouring? I would be ever grateful if u can tell me what kind of paper was used or provide more information on wire modeling craft.
    yours sincerely.

  12. Risa Harada says:


    I’m sorry, maybe I can’t help you about this question, we don’t use paper material for paperhanging, because our lanterns always need exhibited about 3-6 month in a lantern festival, we often use Nylon or Silk material.
