FAPAC invites the members and attendees of the 34th Annual National Leadership Training Program (NLTP) to attend a fun filled evening at the Huntsville Botanical Gardens for their Chinese Lantern Festival! This timely  festival offers a stunning visual exhibition of Chinese art and culture and coincides perfectly with the NLTP.

Boasting more than 1,000 illuminated displays, the Chinese Lantern Festival provides a stunning visual exhibition of Chinese art and culture. We call these lanterns but make no mistake-these are not handheld, candlelit lamps. From humble beginnings of silk and paper, the Chinese lantern has evolved into wondrous shapes and sizes. Enter “The Wild,” a world of life-size illuminated panda bears, lions, flamingos and more fauna from the world’s seven continents. Each of the lanterns is made by masters of the craft in Zigong, China’s center of lantern heritage. See this gorgeous exhibit before it leaves May 19!!!
