Lights on Lightning Lake Lantern Festival – Launch @ Spruce Bay Beach Day Use Area

Join us at Spruce Bay Beach Day Use Area to witness the spectacle of the Lights on Lightning Lake Lantern Festival Launch!  Be at the beach by 9:30pm so everyone can admire your lantern.  Volunteers will help light the lanterns and you can float them off into Lightning Lake.

Even if you didn’t get a chance to make your own lantern, come on down to enjoy the display.  We’ll also have glow jewelry for sale at the beach – bring some change.

We’ll have a flotilla of canoes at the ready to return your lantern after the event. Don’t want (or don’t have room) to take your lantern home?  Just leave it at the beach.  We’ll pick up the leftovers at 10am the next day for use as demos or to be remade into future lanterns.
