It’s almost time for the Danbury Water Lantern Festiva, one of the most beloved annual events in the area. This epic national event will take over the waters in Danbury on May 11th starting at 5:30 p.m. An incredibly unique event run by One World LLC, the event joins together the community, friends and family to spread light, love and peace. Each participant receives a floating lantern, where they can write a special message pertaining to their life goals, commemorating a love one lost, expressing their wishes for the world and more. Everyone gathers at 9 p.m. after enjoying a festival with food and music to release their lanterns together.
You’ll want to purchase your tickets ASAP, as they do sometimes sell out. There is a special promotion on their website right now with a link to share on Facebook, and if you tag two friends you’ll receive $2 off your ticket. Ticket options range from $12 for youth 8 to 14, to $25 for adults until May 8th, with prices increasing prior to the event. You can also purchase a date night package, which comes with two tickets and a special commemorative mandala throw. Learn more about the festival on their website.
