By Xia Lin

NEW YORK, Oct. 29 (Xinhua) -- LuminoCity Festival with a brand new theme and never-before-seen art installations will return to Randall's Island in New York City from Nov. 27 through Jan. 10, 2021, according to a recent announcement of the festival organizer.

The LuminoCity Festival will start in the main park, with 30 to 45 minutes of walking and narrative journey through five sets: Mysterious Forest, Dangerous Dunes, Forgotten Ruins, Hidden Land of Hria, and Mystical Moon Land that tell the story of Lumi, a magical light bulb and the host of the festival.

There will also be a pop culture area featuring 12 light sculptures of famous cat and dog influencers reimagined as the 12 zodiac constellations.

The festival will also have a Mini Gallery that introduces the history and culture behind lantern-making traditions that inspired the origin of LuminoCity, as well as a 26-foot-tall Christmas Tree decked with bulbs at the end of the park.

The festival organizer is working closely with the city to ensure the safety of guests. Safety measures include timed-entry tickets, mandatory mask wearing by staff and visitors, physical distancing, temperature checks, and sanitizer throughout the park to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable experience for all.

A limited number of tickets will be available for each designated time slot. Time slots will be strictly enforced to maintain capacity. Tickets must be purchased online, as there is no on-site box office due to health and safety protocols.

LuminoCity Festival is a month-long holiday event inaugurated by the multimedia entertainment company LuminoCity Inc. in 2019 with an exhibition of spectacular light art displays, live performances, and a celebration of cultures.

The inspiration behind the festival comes from the combination of traditional art of Chinese lantern festivals with modern design and unique storytelling. By bringing the 2,000-year history of the Chinese lantern festival to New York City through an extraordinary new light art form, the festival creates a new reality full of magical wonder and thrilling adventure for all to enjoy, according to the organizer.
