Spanning 700,000 square feet, Hello Panda is the largest international lantern, food and arts experience in the nation.
Hand-painted creations by world-renowned artisans are organized into six immersive theme parks within the festival: Dream World, Holiday Wonderland, Discovery Zone, Interactive Music Zone, Sports World and Community Interactive Zone.
Highlights include a 60-foot Christmas tree, 98-foot long psychedelic tunnel, life-sized safari animals and an enormous fairytale castle.
The Hello Panda Festival delivers a diverse cultural experience, with live performances, contemporary art exhibits, galleries and nightly music showcasing local and international acts.
Guests will be able to keep warm while completing holiday shopping within a holiday market comprised of six heated tents.
Additionally, visitors will be able to experience paper cutting, sugar painting, embroidery, cotton candy art and more through hands-on activities led by leading instructors.
Santa Claus makes the journey from the North Pole to Queens on select days, and will be available for photos.
On the menu, curated through a partnership with World’s Faire, are authentic cuisines from across the globe and features 60 international food vendors.
