As the sun begins to set on the evening sky, the Water Lantern Festival begins to shine with the launch of the lanterns onto the water as we light the water together. Join us on Saturday, May 11 for this incredible experience. 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.
Your Water Lantern Festival experience will start at Ives Concert Park with creating your lantern, enjoying delicious food and drinks and listening to the sweet sounds of music by the Ives pond. At dusk, the lantern launch will begin for a magical experience where the water is transformed into a vision of illuminated beauty. Bring your family and friends for a special evening.
