Dragon Lights Returns

Dragon Lights Reno will once again illuminate the Wilbur D. May Arboretum and Botanical Gardens in Rancho San Rafael Park with all new lantern displays.

Forty-two larger-than-life lantern sculptures, made of steel, fabric and thousands of LED lights, will transform the arboretum into an illuminous wonderland during mid-summer nights. This immersive walk-through experience will entertain and thrill people of all ages.

New at Dragon Lights Reno this year is an interactive playground with lantern displays that visitor can touch, play with, and even sit on! Inside the arboretum, visitors can also find our new Lantern Food Court that offers a wide selection of food and drinks from both local and traveling food vendors.

Reno Tahoe has a culturally vibrant and growing arts scene. Hidden gems and larger-than-life murals are around every corner. Discover year-round art at the Nevada Museum of Art, or join a guided tour with Art Spot Reno. The artistic details are at your fingertips – at VisitRenoTahoe.com
