Festival of Lanterns at Cowabunga Bay showcases handcrafted luminous Chinese Lanterns for guests to experience the magical wonderland featuring the imagination of skilled Artisans who will bring exquisite designs to life now through select dates until February 2022.
The Festival of Lanterns will bring new tastes, sights, entertainment and adventures to the one-of-a-kind holiday festival.
In December, experience a holiday spectacular with all the festive trimmings. Absorb the joyful sounds of merry carolers, then have an unforgettable photo taken with Santa. Vibrant vistas bring the magic of the Christmas Lanterns to life with Santa Claus, Candyland and a spectacular 20-foot tall Christmas tree, the ultimate backdrop for picturesque family photos. The Holiday menu will feature unique delicacies such as chili on a cornbread waffle, scrumptious Monte Christo sandwiches, French bread pizza and chicken with cranberry BBQ sauce. Holiday cocktails include a Christmas Citrus drink and a festive Mojito. Complete the culinary venture with a peppermint brownie truffle or a gingerbread funnel cake with cream cheese drizzle.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for the community to experience a unique excursion that is the only one of its kind west of the Mississippi,” said Shane Huish, owner of Cowabunga Bay. “We have partnered with Zigong Lantern Group, the premier leader in the world of Lantern Arts, to bring this enchanted experience to Cowabunga Bay for everyone to enjoy.”
January rings in the Lunar New Year celebration as the park showcases a magnificent Chinese wonderland. Asian folklore and Chinese cuisine will transport guests to the farthest reaches of the Orient. Daring acrobats and astonishing fountains of sparkles amuse and astound guests throughout the celebration. And a majestic 45-foot-long dragon king emerging from Cowabunga Bay’s wave pool is sure to be memorable.
