Share your message of hope, love, happiness, healing, peace, remembrance, or dreams at the annual Water Lantern Festival. When you arrive, you’ll decorate your lantern with your messages. At dusk, everyone launches their lanterns in the water, and they shine brightly and reflect in the water as darkness falls.
The evening includes food trucks, live music, games, and other activities.
The 2021 Water Lantern Festival has expanded to 100 cities on six continents. It started in 2018 in 34 cities.
Find the closest festival to you and buy tickets at waterlanternfestival.com. Each ticket includes one lantern and supplies to create your own messages.
