The Water Lantern Festival In Austin That’s A Night Of Pure Magic
Austinites love a good festival. If you’ve attended
Bat Fest along The South Congress Bridge, exercised your wordsmith skills at the O. Henry Pun Off, or celebrated Eeyore’s birthday at Pease Park, then you’ll love this delightful event. The Water Lantern Festival is a cascade of romantic lights, lovely music, and delicious food. Experience a night of pure magic at this glistening Austin festival.
Head over to Mueller Lake Park on February 23rd and soak up the magic.
First you'll pick up your supplies and begin crafting.
Each ticket holder will receive a floating water lantern, a commemorative drawstring bag, and a marker for decorating. Fill your lantern will love and well wishes for the year. There's something therapeutic about putting your goals into writing.
Explore the festival grounds and groove to the music. You'll also find plenty of delicious eats at the nearby food trucks.
It wouldn't be an Austin event without some creative food trucks and lively music. With so much excitement in the air, it's hard not to have a great time.
This event is perfect for the entire family.
Young ones will love coloring their lantern and putting their own unique spin on it. The Water Lantern Festival is also a wonderful date night destination. There's really something for everyone here.
Lower your lantern into the lake when the sun starts to set.
The views will astound you. You'll feel like you're living in a movie scene when you see thousands of illuminated lanterns gracefully floating along Mueller Lake.
Enjoy the beauty. The festival's volunteers will ensure that no waste is left behind.
The Water Lantern Festival is a leave-no-trace organization. They'll clean up all of the trash once the event wraps up and leave the park looking better than when they found it. In addition, the water lanterns are made from wood and rice paper, so they're 100% eco-friendly.
Don't miss this glorious event!
