Last time you released a large, burning object into the air, you were lambasted by your scoutmaster, flogged, and got your merit badge in misdemeanors.
At The Lantern Fest, you join with thousands of other revelers, armed with lanterns representing their highest hopes, deepest regrets, or tiniest transgressions, and set them aloft in an offering to the Instagram gods. You’ll walk away with your record clean and smelling of Lemon Pledge and with memories burned with Lasik-like precision into your retinas.
Each ticket gets you a lantern, a lighter, sticker and the chance to be a part of the most spectacular sight since Universal Pictures staged the moon landing. Cover yourself in glow-in-the-dark body paint, decorate your lanterns, nosh on some s’mores, and dance in LED lights with your friends. Just when the time is right we’ll join together for a lantern lighting to celebrate the discovery of fire and to put a crink in our necks for days. Participants 16 years and older are required to register. Each registrant will receive their own Lantern as well as some other goodies. Participants 15 years and younger are free of charge and may be spectators, but may not be involved in Lantern lighting.
These Lanterns are 100% biodegradable. Not to mention after each release we have professional "Lantern Chasers" that will make those armored truck driving meteorologists look like you local news' weatherman.
