The 2nd annual Water Lantern Festival is coming to Ives Concert Park. This season will feature Art at Ives – a Juried Fine Art & Crafts Show.
Enjoy the beauty of watching your hand-crafted water lanterns being launched on the Ives pond. Watch your unique lantern drift out into the water as it joins other lanterns carrying hope, love, happiness, healing, peace, and connection. It’s a night that you’ll never forget.
Water Lantern Festival is filled with fun, happiness, hope, and great memories that you’ll cherish for a lifetime. This is a family friendly event that can be shared by everyone. Friends, families, neighbors, and lots of people that you haven’t met, come together to create a peaceful, memorable experience.
With an emphasis on sustainability, all lights will be in the form of LED candles, and all lanterns are made from eco-friendly rice paper and wood.
