Since its Paris debut in mid-December, the Yuyuan Garden Lantern Show has attracted huge crowds to admire its fine designs and colorful lights during the chilly winter nights at the 163-year-old Jardin d'Acclimatation amusement park.

It is the first time the lantern show, a national intangible cultural heritage in Shanghai, has been held outside China.

The show, which opened on Dec 15 in Paris at the same time as the one that opened in Shanghai's Yuyuan Garden, is among events celebrating the 60th anniversary of the establishment of China-France diplomatic relations. It also ushers in the China-France Year of Culture and Tourism. The show will run through Feb 25.
