What Is The Water Lantern Festival?

How often do we find ourselves too wrapped up in the stress, struggles, and negativity of the modern world? How often do we lose sight of how truly precious and miraculous life is? Better yet, how many of us focus too much on our failures and stumbles, and not enough on our goals, dreams, and the pursuit of happiness?

The Water Lantern Festival is a time for clarity and perspective. It’s a time to refocus on the shared connection that binds all of us together as humans, find peace with one another, and put some positive energy back into the world.

Here, you’ll enjoy an evening of food and fellowship with your local community. Use this opportunity to spend time with family, reconnect with old friends, or meet someone new! As the sun sets over the festival grounds, each person will be given a floating lamp to decorate with signs and messages of healing, hope, happiness, and love. Then, together, you’ll send them out over the lake in Thornton park in a magically radiant ceremony that’s sure to inspire joy and awe within each and every person in attendance.
