13 Chinese Lantern Festival Tips
The weather was cold and slightly windy. I wore a light jacket, jeans and tennis shoes. There are not really any places to sit, so wear comfortable shoes.
If you take the DART green line. Stop in Deep Ellum and grab a burger at Twisted Root or pizza at Cane Rosso. Then head to the Fair Park stop. Or you can go to the Meridian room for drinks and grab. That place is directly across the street from the Fair Park Stop
Parking is EXPENSIVE- $15 and we were only there for about 45 minutes because it was cold
Get off at the front gate of Fair Park. MLK is OK but longer walk to the entrance of the Lanterns.
The weather was chilly, being winter the temps are dropping and it is a night outing so dress warmly. I wore a sweater and jeans.
It is just typical fair food, they do try to add a little asian fusion by adding fried rice and egg rolls to a menu of hot dogs and nachos
The DART train was easy
