China Lights Returns to Boerner Botanical Gardens

The popular China Lights illuminated lantern exhibit will return this fall to Boerner Botanical Gardens, in Hales Corners, for its fourth year. This year’s show, called Treasures of China, runs from September 13 through October 20 and features mostly new displays, including a lantern interpretation of the iconic terracotta warriors.

The striking lanterns, some as high as three stories, were made by hand by Chinese craftspeople. China Lights also has an expanded interactive exhibit area, two stages hosting Asian folk and cultural performances, a vendor marketplace and two dining areas with a mix of Asian and Western food choices.

Cost: $12 for children ages 5 to 17 and seniors age 60-plus; $20 adults 18 to 59; additional VIP packages and special passes also available. Location: 9400 Boerner Dr., Hales Corners. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit
