Time Out says
Wander through gardens filled with massive lanterns, shimmering flowers and whimsical dragons as the L.A. County Arboretum lights up for Moonlight Forest.
This nighttime event, held across the grounds of the Arcadia botanical garden, returns for its second year with two additional themes: “polar dreams” and “ocean visions.” Last year’s debut included a slew of Chinese lanterns—but not the small, hanging type—that covered a field at the Arboretum with parade-float–sized structures, with other themed archways and playful creatures lining the pathways around the grounds. The lanterns, crafted by artisans from China’s Sichuan province, are arranged by their themes; this year’s pair of new themes should bring penguins, sled dogs, fish and sharks into the fray.
Tickets cost $28 for adults and go on sale to the public on October 15, 2019. In the meantime, check out our coverage of last year’s event.
