Was nice to see. The crew at the gate had no idea what they were doing. took like 5 min. a car to pay for parking that was $15. Was not worth the cost even with Goldstar.

For one, music for the park – playing...continued

Beautiful, and worth experiencing in person - photos can't really do it justice. Chinese acrobats put on a show at 6:30 and 8 p.m., included in admission. Note: parking is $15 inside Fair Park.

First in line, what a feeling! Had printout confirmation in hand. Waited 10 minutes, gate opens, told they do not honor Goldstar confirmations, only Groupon, and I will have to get in line across the way. Long line, finally get to front, only to...continued

Friday night Jan 17th - wonderful experience! I'd advise telling the public to go to Gate 5 for will call - then walk inside the park to entrance of Festival- and to the left to find Will Call.

I thought the lantern displays were beautifully crafted. The overall design and layout of the display made for wonderful photo oppurtunites.

It was the most amazing display of silks, light, an Asian beauty, I have ever seen. Bring plenty of cash because if you are into Asian handmade trinkets or breath taking art, you will walk away with something extra special to make those memories...continued
