The Water Lantern Festival In Cincinnati That’s A Night Of Pure Magic

As soon as the weather begins to change in the Queen City, our calendars fill up with outdoor festivals featuring all sorts of activities and foods. We gather by the thousands to eat from our city’s best restaurants, cheer on the beginning of baseball season, and you could easily spend every weekend of the summer visiting various church and cultural festivals. But this spring – on June 1st, to be exact – as summer rolls in, there’s another festival that you will absolutely need to add to your calendar. The 1,000 Lights Water Lantern Festival is unique and unforgettable, and it’s sure to be a night of pure magic.

If you think these photos are stunning, just wait until you see the lanterns calmly floating across the lake! Here’s a short video shared by 1,000 Lights for another little peek at what you’ll see at the festival, but it’s impossible to truly capture the magical feeling of seeing it in real life.

The 1,000 Lights Water Lantern Festival is a wonderful way to gather together as a city, celebrate life, cherish memories and loved ones, and experience a night of pure magic in the heart of Cincinnati. Will you attend this unique event? Have you been to one before? Let us know in the comments!
