At Lantern Fest, thousands of revelers empowered with lanterns join together for one unforgettable night time spectacle. Before sundown, friends and families can enjoy food, live music, a stage show, princesses, face painting, s'mores, balloon artists and more. Then, when the time is just right... We will light the sky with our highest hopes and fondest dreams.
EVENT DAY INFO
Gates open at 3:00pm. Sunset is at 8:40pm and launch should take place around 9:55pm.
Lanterns will fly when the sun goes down and the Fire Marshall gives approval. Be sure to arrive early enough to park, check-in and find a place to enjoy the event.
ARRIVING: You will be assigned a parking lot A, C, or D. It's time to go old school and follow the map to your lot. Don't forget to have $10 cash ready.
EXITING: You will be given a flyer when you park with a color on it. When the Lantern Fest host says your color it is your turn to leave. This will help the flow of the exiting traffic. While you are waiting enjoy the fire performance at the stage.
