The most popular lantern festival on mainland China returned after a two-year hiatus to light up the streets of Shanghai in celebration of the Chinese Lunar New Year. Last year, the event was banned due to a stampede in Shanghai that killed 36 people and injured 49 during the 2014 New Year celebrations.
