Lantern Festival at Missouri Botanical Garden

A few weekends ago, I attended the Lantern Festival at the Missouri Botanical Garden. The structures in this exhibit are crafted from silk and steel, and they are lit from within. Some even have movement and fire! You can also catch performances from a Chinese Acrobatic Performance Troupe.

This exhibit goes until August 23, 2015, so if you live in the area or will be traveling around St. Louis this summer, it's definitely worth a visit.

Here are just a few of the pictures I took at the exhibit:

This is one of my favorite pictures.

This sculpture was made using tied-together porcelain dishes.
