Once the animals fall asleep, the lit-up jungle comes alive for humans to wander through. Jungle Island has the most enchanting event this holiday season that will brighten up your Instagram feed. If you're looking for things to do in Miami, include the Luminosa Chinese Lantern Festival in your adventures.

The festival is finally opening to the public tomorrow on October 5th and it will be the most magical stroll of your life. Over one million LEDs light up the trails at Jungle Island, offering a Feng Shui ambiance for those looking for a different journey. Massive tropical flowers, larger-than-life flamingos and even parrots hiding in the palm trees brighten up the wildlife light paradise.

Christmas in Miami arrived sooner than expected and this event is ideal for a romantic date that will make you feel like you're in a scene of Life of Pi with a twist. The wildlife-themed lanterns tell a story about Miami's history, diverse culture & art scene. 

Through your journey you will discover a flock of flamingos honking and a thrilling opportunity to zip line your way down to the park. This Chinese Lantern Festival pays homages to nature and the efforts to protect the environment.

Before you head back to the exit you will find a beach-themed area where cultural fashion meets creativity. Miami has flavor and these lanterns represent the art culture, graffiti art and food fusion that happens in the Magic City.

The Luminosa Chinese Lantern Festival will open to the public tomorrow, October 5th until January 8th, 2020. Tickets start at $30.80 per adult.
