Why We Light: The Lantern Fest

Historically, Chinese Lanterns have symbolized good fortune, requested favorable weather, and celebrated the lives of loved ones. In 2014, The Lantern Fest translated this ancient tradition into a family-friendly festival with food, live music, smores, and children’s entertainment. When the sun goes down, lanterns paint the sky in a spectacular release. The Lantern Fest is growing rapidly and now holds events all over the country. It is an event that truly strengthens bonds and reminds us of the awe we all share when we let go and live in the moment.  A feel-good moment that lasts the whole season, Lantern Fest is a meeting of humanity, love, and visually striking memories saved forever. Organizers anticipate an international array of locations and we are excited to welcome St.Louis to our Light Family.

The Lantern Fest announces 2017 schedule:

FALL 2017 – Communities will gather all over the nation in a celebration of life, light, hopes, and dreams as The Lantern Fest launches into 2017. Lanterns will continue to sail in various cities, including Salt Lake City, Providence, Spokane, and much more. The website stays updated with new locations weekly as event organizers continue to bring Lantern Fest across the country.

When gates open at  PM, families, and friends can settle in, roast marshmallows for smores, explore local vendors and enjoy face painting, balloon artists, and inflatables. As the evening continues, the stage is filled with live entertainment, a children’s show, and competitions until sundown, when the lanterns light the night sky.
