We are out of tickets to the Water Lantern Festival
They’ve been held across the country and the experience is unforgettable. The nation-wide Water Lantern Festival is coming to Milwaukee on Saturday, June 8th at Veteran’s Park on the Lakefront. The festival gives attendees a chance to light the water with your community and take in the beautiful sight of hundreds of tiki torches as you relax and connect with those around you. Watch your unique lantern drift out into the water as it joins other lanterns carrying hope, love, happiness, healing, peace and connection.
Gates to the event open at 5 p.m. on June 8th and you’ll find food trucks, music, and fun. Tickets include your entry into the festival area and you’ll be given a floating lantern, a marker to create your own lantern design, commemorative drawstring bag, and wristband. By 8 p.m., guests are encouraged to design their special lantern and make it uniquely theirs before launching. Launching begins at sunset, and will last from about 8:30 to 9:30, and the festival is committed to ensuring a sustainable event with zero impact to the environment. The eco-friendly lanterns, which are made from rice paper and wood, will all be removed from the water and properly disposed of at the conclusion of the event by their team of dedicated workers.
It’s a peaceful, people pleasing event. And Urban Milwaukee members can attend, join the fun and launch your special lantern, for free. It’s just another perk in Urban Milwaukee’s unique membership program, unlike any other news site in town.
