The colorful Asian Lantern Spectacular has returned to Roger Williams Park through July 4, where over 50 percent of the exhibits are new, adding a truly spectacular Chinese cultural entertainment show on weekends at 7 p.m..
The acclaimed Boston Chinese Folk Workshop will make four visits in addition to other local groups. We caught their spectacular 45-minute show, and it is more than worth the price of admission.
The brightly lit Asian lanterns, representing over 2,000 years of tradition, line the entire path of the zoo, with lantern animals mingling among the real-life animals.
Visit the snack bar, adjacent to the stage, where Chinese delicacies include General Tao’s chicken, egg rolls, fried rice and dumplings along with the traditional hot dogs and hamburgers.
Tickets are $25 for adults and $23 for children and are only available online. You must sign up for a specific day and time. The exhibit is available Wednesday through Sunday from 6 to 10:30 p.m., with tickets sold until 9:30 p.m. Tickets are non-refundable, and the exhibit is open rain or shine.
Give yourself at least two hours to walk the entire zoo exhibit and see the show. The wide, mostly paved walkways make it easy to maneuver, stop and rest and push wheelchairs.
