The Asian Lantern Festival takes place at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo.
More than 40 larger than life lantern displays are set to light up the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo this summer during the Asian Lantern Festival. This after-zoo-hours event takes place every Thursday through Sunday from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. today through Aug. 19.

The festival showcases Asian culture not just through elaborate paper lanterns, but with authentic food, craft markets and live performances — all this while being surrounded by zoo animals.

Tickets for non-members are $17.50 if you buy online here. Day-of tickets are $20.50 for everyone at the box office.

Here is a sneak peak of what to expect for these lantern displays:
