Visitors had the chance to become enchanted by these marvelous light sculptures placed tactfully within the perimeters of the botanical garden. Asian snacks and drinks were provided to set the tone and mood.
Light Festivals are an ancient Chinese tradition. The first China Light Festival took place two years ago in Rotterdam.
