The Chinese Garden at the Montreal's Botanical Gardens will be putting together and amazing display of traditional lanterns, and when the sun goes down and the lanterns light up, it becomes the most beautiful place in the city.

Every year, the display has a unique theme. In the past we've seen The Son Of Heaven, which focused on the life of one of China's emperors.  And last year, to mark the 25th edition, the theme was none other than Dragons accompanied by its nine offspring, protecting the newly restored pavilions.

And now, the 2018 lantern festival theme has officially been revealed.

Check out some of the photos from last's year's Garden of lights display:
