Gi­ant Lanterns Of China

The Scots Magazine - - Wild About Scotland -

Ed­in­burgh Zoo, Novem­ber 17– Fe­bru­ary 17 (Fri­day to Sun­day; ex­tra dates over the fes­tive pe­riod)

Af­ter a suc­cess­ful run of 50 nights last year, Ed­in­burgh Zoo will open its doors af­ter-hours once again this win­ter for a Chi­nese fes­ti­val with a Scot­tish twist. Last year more than 450 gi­ant lanterns were in­stalled around the zoo, ac­com­pa­nied by per­for­mances, food and drink stalls and a night mar­ket. The event stems from a part­ner­ship be­tween the Royal Zoo­log­i­cal So­ci­ety of Scot­land and Sichuan, the birth­place of Tian Tian and Yang Guang, Scot­land’s gi­ant pan­das. It’s a great event for all ages. Don’t be dis­ap­pointed if you don’t see any of the zoo’s reg­u­lar in­hab­i­tants, who will be tucked up safely away from the ac­tion.
