The Water Lantern Festival In New York That’s A Night Of Pure Magic
You can find just about every type of festival happening somewhere in our state all throughout the year, but it just so happens that some of our favorite and most magical events taken place during the summertime. Coming to New York at the end of August, discover why this one water lantern festival is bound to light up your night.
Coming soon to New York, the Water Lantern Festival is making quite a few stops around our state this year.
Lighting up the night with their biodegradable lanterns, those who are interested in buying tickets and participating in this one-of-a-kind festival will take part in an evening they'll never forget.
Beginning earlier on in the day, the festival gates will open and visitors will have live music, activities, and delicious food trucks available to them.
While everyone waits for nightfall to arrive, you'll have the chance to write whatever message you'd like on your lantern...
...And before you know it, nightfall will arrive and all the lanterns will mystically make their way out onto the water.
If you're worried about how this will affect the environment, then have no fear! The Water Lantern Festival makes sure that every destination they visit around the country is left cleaner than it was before they arrived. At the end of each festival, a crew goes out and collects all of the biodegradable lanterns as well as any other trash they happen to stumble across.
So, when and where can you get tickets to these festivals? First off, with the purchase of your ticket you'll gain entry to the festival, and also receive a water lantern, LED keychain flashlight, marker, and a wristband. As of right now, there are currently tickets still available for the New York / New Jersey location that takes place at Liberty State Park in New Jersey on July 20th. This particular festival may be technically out of state, but is a useful destination for our residents who live downstate and want to experience this for themselves.
