The lantern show is also embracing the concept of environmental protection. For example, a dragon lantern measuring over 200 meters long was made by bundling together some 200,000 discarded water bottles. A set of lanterns recreating the famous Chinese statue "Bronze Galloping Horse Treading on a Flying Swallow" from the Eastern Han Dynasty (25-220 AD) was created by using 21 different kinds of waste materials, including tires, leather and plastics to form its exterior decorations.

This year's show received more than 3,000 children's artworks from around the world. Some of the art pieces were turned into lanterns by skilled artisans.
