Lantern Festivals

Many city and state officials are learning that the demand for releasing sky lanterns into the night sky is growing rapidly. These magical events are based around floating lanterns that create an awe-inspiring moment that is both breathtaking and beautiful to witness.

Sky Lanterns, sometimes called “floating lanterns” or “wish lanterns” are essentially small hot air balloons, typically made of eco-friendly rice paper and have small opening in the bottom where a fuel cell is set on fire to create heat, allowing the balloon to rise. Lanterns have been released for thousands of years at festivals in Asia and elsewhere around the world for play, or as part of celebration festivals.

There has been a recent increase in popularity of releasing sky lanterns, and the desire will likely continue to grow after the spreading of beautiful images and reviews on social media. It is important that individuals that have the desire to release a sky lantern do so only in a safe and supervised setting.

Properly planned lantern festivals can create a safe and memorable experience. However, not all event companies hosting lantern festivals provide a quality experience so it's important to check into who is organizing the lantern festival.
