The New York City Winter Lantern Festival has come to Roslyn Harbor with A Bug’s Life: Drive Through Adventure. As the sun sets, the holiday spirit comes to life and lights up the night.

Nassau County Museum Of Art and its surrounding acres have been transformed into an oasis of color and light. This is a great way to celebrate the holiday season with an adventure everyone in the family can enjoy.

See dazzling displays of holiday lights and beautiful Chinese lanterns. The displays will delight you. And you can do it all from the comfort and safety of your own car.

You will be small and everything else will be big so you’re viewing all this as a bug would. See these lovely light displays from a bug’s point of view.

Drive through 20 acres of magical illuminations on an enchanting journey. You’ll pass one stunning tableau of light and color after another. Enjoy seeing projection mapping.

The lanterns are not kerosene lights but gorgeous, elaborate hand made Chinese lanterns. The lanterns are made of a steel frame that is covered with silk fabric. LED lighting is inside the lanterns to illuminate them.

The lanterns are sculpted into amazing figures. They’re formed into tropical, colorful flowers, huge dinosaurs, glowing lizards, crocodiles, tigers, pandas and more.

There will be a gift shop if you’d like souvenirs or want to do your holiday shopping. Food vendors will be selling seasonal treats, snacks and drinks.

So, come, and be a part of this lovely holiday adventure. And let the lantern festival light up your night and season.

The Lantern Festival goes from 5:00 pm to 9:30 pm. It will run through January 9, 2021.
