Nearly 40 artisan-made light displays from Sichuan, China, have been set up on the lakefront this week as part of the "Dragon Lights" festival.

The city of Zigong, where the artisans who made the lanterns hail from, is "China's cultural capital for the ancient art of lantern making," organizers said.

The lights will be set up through Sunday. The 39 larger displays were handmade on-site in Chicago. One of the larger dragons is 200 feet long and two stories high. There are thousands of smaller lanterns as well, along with performances by acrobats and other entertainers.

"Dragon Lights." Through 5/6. Mon-Thu 5:30-10 PM, Sat-Sun 5:30-11 PM, South Parking Lot, Soldier Field, 1410 S. Museum Campus, dragonlightschicago.com, $13-$20.
