The Dinosaur Lantern Festival in Zigong City, which is held around the Spring Festival, dates back to the Tang (618-907) and the Song (960-1279) Dynasties. At the festival are displayed China's colorful traditional lanterns made of bamboo, silk, paper and glass bottles, together with the colorful modern porcelain lanterns, underwater lanterns, gas-discharging lanterns, and the program-controlled lanterns.

You can feast your eyes on more than 100 collections of large lanterns as well as several thousand small ones. Most of the funny and beautiful lantern shapes are based on myths, legends, historical stories, movie &TV stories, folk customs, and science-fiction figures. The diversified vivid dinosaur shapes, which are indispensable to the festival, are most distinctive and enchanting.
