You Don’t Want To Miss This Gorgeous Lantern Festival In Colorado This Year

In case you couldn’t tell, the warm weather has put all of us here at Only in Your State in full-blown outdoor mode… and what better way to enjoy the great outdoors than by taking in one of the state’s many festivals?! For an event guaranteed to light up both the nighttime sky and your weekend, check out this gorgeous Colorado lantern festival:

Tentatively scheduled for September 30th (with a venue yet to be confirmed), The Lantern Fest is Colorado’s premiere lantern festival that features not only an amazing light spectacle, but also live music, s’mores, and delicious vendors. Produced by Sack Lunch Productions, The Lantern Fest is a touring event that has delighted not only Centennial State families, but countless other families across America since 2014. In addition to an unforgettable light show, attendees will be provided with a bio-degradable lantern of their own (plus a marker and lighter) to launch at dusk!

Tickets for The Lantern Fest begin at $30 for adults and $5 for kids 4 to 12 (with kids 3 and under free!). To stay in the know about locations and more, check out the Colorado Lantern Fest’s event listing on Facebook.
