If there is one thing we can all agree on, it is that we all love some pretty lights. During the holiday season, driving around and seeing all the Christmas lights and decor is a fan favorite. This entire season you'll be able to attend this Chinese Lantern Festival in North Carolina for a different holiday experience. 

The Chinese Lantern Festival in the town of Cary, North Carolina will go on from Nov. 22 to Jan. 12, which is the best time of the year in our opinion. The festival will have more than 20 full displays of massive lanterns and the night sky will glow.

Several spots in the country are having similar events, like the one in Georgia that will be "Into the Wild" themed. This lantern festival in North Carolina will make you feel like you are right in the middle of China. 

Each of the displays has thousands of LED lights that create an incredible glow effect. You will actually be able to get up close and personal with these lanterns and take as many photos as you want with them. 

There will be different spots throughout the festival where you can take a seat and observe the lights because they will be that mesmerizing. It will also get pretty chilly at night, so this is a good place to warm your muscles back up.

There will be various food and drink stands that will be featuring fun holiday treats. As you can see, this sounding more and more like the perfect place for a date night this season. 

The website suggests that you give yourself anywhere from 45 to 75 minutes to enjoy the displays and performances throughout the night. 

If you loved this festival, you will also love Christmas Town USA's holiday long party that has over a million lights to see.
