About the event...
- Individuals and families purchase a 100% eco-friendly sky lantern with no wire or wax to support Marley's Mission or in honor of someone special
- Admission includes food, live music performed by Abby Millon and La Lava Django, face painting, drum circles, Circus Yoga and a presentation by Marley's Mission.
- At the conclusion of these festivities, all sky lantern holders will disperse along the launch location around twilight.
- Volunteers will begin lighting your lanterns after the first BLUE Marley's Mission Lantern appears in the twilight sky!
- Once lit, you will feel your lantern begin to lift. From here, participants will let go of their lanterns. Upon letting go, the lanterns will rise miles into the air and naturally go out after about 10 minutes. These lanterns gently land and decompose quickly.
- All the proceeds from this event benefit Marley's Mission.
