ROUNDHAY PARK LEEDS - WHAT'S ON AT THE PARK
Have an event at the Park which is NOT listed? - let us KNOW!!
"The Magical Lantern Festival makes its debut at Roundhay Park in Leeds this year - 2016.
They promise visitors a truly amazing experience, a visual feast of light and illumination, hidden amongst the grandeur of Europe's largest city park.
Visitors will see some of the most artistic and beautifully constructed lantern installations outside China. The lanterns represent and celebrate Christmas and Chinese culture and heritage.
The festival offers endless fun and may tantalise and tease children's senses leaving them in awe of their surroundings! At the end of the festival children will enter the entertainment area where they can (optionally) visit Santa's Grotto, sample delicious hot food from around the world and enjoy the funfair and games.
Children may be mesmerised by the fantastic array of colours, brightly lit giant lanterns in the shape of santa, reindeers, Christmas trees, flowers, plants, Camels, London Bus, giant panda, giant fish and so much more…..
The festival will be open everyday throughout the Christmas school holidays apart from Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, making the festival a perfect destination for a family night out!"
