What is the Lantern Fest? It is a an opportunity for thousands of cool people to join together to create an unforgettable display of light.
 Each attendee gets a kit with all the fixings for s'mores, tools to decorate your lantern, and an opportunity for great memories.
You can arrive early for an afternoon of live music, dancing, food trucks, kid's fun,

 and s'mores.
After the sun sets and the time is just right,
it is time to light the sky with lanterns.
The lanterns are supposed to represent our highest hopes, deepest regrets, and fondest dreams.

You are welcome to write on or decorate your lantern to represent those things.
Then after you light the lantern, 
you let it go and let it float away to the sky.
It is really a sight to behold.
 I have never experienced an event like this before, but I am sure this won't be the last time.
