Chinese light installations combined with Estonian amusement park equipment on Saturday brought joy to visitors to the Festival of Light "Dreamland" at the Tallinn Song Festival Grounds.

In spite of the cold and dark winter time and the coronavirus pandemic, visitors wearing face masks enjoyed the 36 bright and colorful light installations from Zigong Haitian Culture Co., Ltd in southwest China's Sichuan province, which is famous for its lantern culture, as well as the Estonian merry-go-round, desert show and acrobatics.

The Chinese light sculptures featuring Panda, animals, flowers, buildings and Christmas trees attracted visitors to take photos and walk through the light houses.

A lady, together with a toddler, told Xinhua that "the light festival is cool" and offered another option besides the traditional Christmas market for amusement during the winter holiday season.

The festival, which kicked off on Dec. 4 and will end on Jan. 10, 2021, opens from Thursday to Sunday each week from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. local time. This is the second time for the festival to be held in Tallinn. The first one was held from Dec. 6, 2019 to Jan. 12, 2020.

"We would like to bring the beauty of the Chinese lights and culture to the Estonian people, and feel happy to see the visitors' smiling faces. Together with the Estonian partners, we include the Estonian amusement and games in the festival for a win-win for both sides," said Lin Chuan of the Chinese company which helped organize the event.
