All lanterns will be cleaned up after the event by our awesome staff. In addition, we pick up any trash that may have previously been in or around the water. The lanterns are made from rice paper and wood so they are as eco-friendly as possible and we reuse and recycle the LED candles.
While they're called many things such as lantern festivals, lights festivals, floating lanterns, water fest, or Chinese lanterns - only Water Lantern Festival allows you to Light The Water in a way you'll never forget. Now you can experience the magic of thousands of lanterns as the soft lights reflect upon the water.
