The popular event once again saw the park filled with enchanting lanterns, installations and light shows in an interactive trail.


This year’s ‘Christmas Fantasy’ at Lightopia includes brand new installations, like the Magic Circus display and the Field of Love, with 50,000 hearts covering the ground.
