Right now, at the Calgary Zoo, something truly unique is taking place!
Welcome to glowing world of Illuminasia!!
Last week was the official kick off for India to take the spotlight.
From the hour long dance performance that seemingly gets better and better until its grand finale, to the wonderful cuisine that is made available to purchase around the zoo!
Butter Chicken, Naan & Samosas? Yes please!
Illuminasia has been a whopping 2 years in planning, delayed due to the flood, and the results of their hard work…
- All 366 lanterns were custom designed and made for the Calgary Zoo.
They were produced in China and all animals were shipped in whole form (except the Giraffe which was too tall to fit into the crate!).
- The lanterns are made with wire frames and covered with colourful silk rayons.
All detailing is done by hand, using paint bushes & airbrushed detailing.
The night is a truly a spectacular performance of arts and culture not to be missed.
