The 30th International Dinosaur Lantern Show will run until July 30. The sets of lanterns will be updated to keep up with other traditional Chinese festivals, such as the Qingming Festival and the Dragon Boat Festival. Visitors can also enjoy acrobatics, folk arts, and Chinese music performances during their lantern-viewing tours.

Famous for lantern-making, Zigong saw its lanterns illuminating 80 cities across China, including Beijing, Shanghai, Xi'an and Chengdu, during this year's Spring Festival holiday. Zigong lanterns have also been lit up in more than 20 countries overseas this year, including Norway, Switzerland and Hungary.
