The Lantern Fest is an opportunity for thousands of revelers to join together as a community and create an unforgettable spectacle of light. After an afternoon of live music, dancing, and s’mores, when the sun sets and the time is just right, we light the sky with lanterns representing our highest hopes, deepest regrets, and fondest dreams.
Historically lanterns were used to symbolize good fortune, request favorable weather, or celebrate the life of a loved one. At Lantern Fest, you could be with us to turn over a new leaf, or just to capture some likes on Instagram. Families and friends can dance to music, roast marshmallows, and munch on snacks provided by local vendors, all before watching the lanterns float away in an unforgettable release.
