The Chinese Lantern Festival is an enchanting daytime exhibit, too! Before heading out to explore it, join us for a buffet of delicious Chinese breakfast foods. Kids will get a kick out of having noodles for breakfast and Piper & Leaf Artisan Tea Co. will provide a selection of teas for the adults. We’ll also have Chinese-themed crafts and face painting.

Morning tea is a traditional custom in China and is usually accompanied by dishes called dim sum, which can include rice, noodles, dumplings, or buns. These small plates are usually enjoyed with green, oolong, jasmine, chrysanthemum, or other types of tea.
