Legends of the Silk Road Come to Light

The CNE will "come to light" this year with a spectacular indoor lantern festival!

A stunning series of 17 illuminated sculpture installations will create a kaleidoscope of colour, themed around legends and myths associated with the ancient Silk Road.

In celebration of the year of Canada-China tourism, the awe-inspiring displays were created by 90 artists using 4,000 metres of synthetic silk, 55 metres of steel, and arrived in eight shipping containers that travelled more than 12,000 km from China to Toronto!

The CNE's indoor lantern festival is co-produced by DDM Entertainment and Events Inc.
