An illuminating Halloween experience

A large dragon lantern exhibit is part of the Dragon Lights Albuquerque event at Expo New Mexico. This year, Dragons House of Horror will join the festivities for Halloween.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Dragon Lights Albuquerque and Dragons House of Horror are partnering on a free Halloween experience – including trick-or-treating – from 4-5:30 p.m. Wednesday at Expo New Mexico for those 15 and younger and their accompanying parents or guardians.

The “Dragon Halloween” event includes a haunted house tour, and trick-or-treating alongside a gigantic 40-foot dragon lantern, a 20-foot shark lantern and other exhibits.

Dragon Lights Albuquerque is a Chinese cultural festival featuring larger-than-life fully illuminated lanterns, cultural performances and Chinese handicrafts. Dragons House of Horror is the Guinness Book of World Records’ holder for world’s longest indoor walking horror house.

“Our performers will be dressed in their Chinese cultural costumes and distribute candy to children alongside our larger-than-life lanterns, including our signature dragon and Temple of Heaven lanterns. They will also have a chance to enjoy our cultural festival before it opens to the public that evening,” said Stephanie Zhou, spokesperson for Dragon Lights Albuquerque in a news release.

Matty Perea, general manager of Dragons House of Horror, said the attraction has characters such as the Mad Hatter providing an “entertaining and slightly scary experience for all ages.”

Costumes are encouraged and bags provided to collect Halloween candy.
