Twin Cities Water Lantern Festival | Kids Out and About Minneapolis/St. Paul

Twin Cities Water Lantern Festival

*The event has already taken place on this date: Sat, 07/31/2021
This truly unique experience combines many deep emotions and feelings that represents something different for each one of the thousands of individuals who have personalized their floating lanterns. After the decorated lanterns are lit with an LED candle, participants set them upon the calm evening water and they float away into the night. Each lantern has been designed to carry dreams for the future, memories of those who've passed, hopes for peace, and love for others in a beautiful celebration of life. It's a very personal and unifying experience to witness so many emotions combined together in one tranquil setting.

In contrast to the sometimes overwhelming onslaught of negative day-to-day media and out of balance life, the impact and positive experience of the Water Lantern Festival is something that the world not only craves, but needs. It's an opportunity to slow down, reflect on life, and reconnect with what makes us human beings - connection with those we care most about, and even ourselves.
The Water Lantern Festival keeps the mood upbeat and positive with local live musicians and performers, food trucks, and local vendors and artisans who proudly display their products. The combination of this positive atmosphere with the unique and beautiful lanterns make this remarkable event a truly memorable experience.
