If you live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, I would suggest taking your little ones to the Chinese Lantern Festival. This is being held at Fair Park in Dallas, Texas until January 6th. I went and enjoyed it tremendously!
The cost to get in is $9.00-$16.00. This is an interesting exhibit of art. The giant dragon on display is made up entirely of plates. There is another dragon piece that is made up of medicine bottles filled with colored water.
