Lantern Fest!

It's one of the most beautiful sights I've ever seen, thousands of lanterns floating up into the sky.

Last October, we had the luck to be able to get tickets to this event in Reno. Unfortunately, I don’t think it’s coming soon to a location close to home.  Everyone should experience this at least once in their life, if you can get to it.  It’ll leave tingles through your body as you watch the lanterns light up and float away, and you’ll want to hug whoever is standing next to you (and steal their s’mores if they’re nearby).

Logistics of the night: We each received boxes with s’more supplies, a lighter and markers.  They also had fire pits and provided the wood for burning.  You need to bring your own food and drinks and seating and/or blankets.  There were food vendors available but not many.  There was also music, and it’s spread out enough that people are not sitting shoulder to shoulder.  The event is great for both kids and adults.

Thousands of biodegradable lanterns are released.
You write your hopes and dreams on the lanterns before lighting them up.

I travel, eat, blog, organize and re-organize, hunt for the unusual out of the usual, attempt many DIY projects, and can't go without boba for more than a week. The craziest road trip I ever took was to go to Sequoia National Park for a day - from Huntington Beach. The round trip was over 12 hours and the visit lasted about 2 hours. But the views were worth it!
