2013 LANTERN FESTIVAL

Manning Park Resort presents the 2013 Lights on Lightning Lake Festival!

Manning Provincial Park: Manning Park Resort is back in business as your four seasons destination for Fresh Air Experiences! The new owners are ready to light up the park and invite you to join them for the 2013 Lights on Lightning Lake Festival.
Saturday, August 3 will see the park come alive with people building lanterns during the day and then floating them out onto beautiful Lightning Lake in the evening. Come be part of this spectacular event!

Lantern construction will take place at the Lightning Lake Day Use Area from 10am-3pm. Lantern kits are available at a cost of $15 which provides access to the materials needed to build your very own floating lantern. If all the creative construction makes you hungry, there will be a barbecue on the go from 11-2pm.

Lantern lighting will take place at the Spruce Bay Beach, just down the hill from the Lightning Lake Campground. Lantern builders and spectators alike will begin to gather on the beach at 8:30 as the sun goes down, ready to light and launch the lanterns around 9pm as the sky goes dark. Staff volunteers will be on hand to rescue lanterns and return them to shore after everyone has enjoyed the magical display.
