* 2016 Festival Has Been Postponed Until A Later Date

​​1.  When do you fly the lanterns? 

A common misconception of this lantern festival is that they are floating lanterns, but due to fire safety and regulations, we do not offer actual floating lanterns as part of our event.  Our lanterns are very large (40-60 ft) metal and colorful silk sculptures adored with lights.  The highlight of the event is these lit cultural displays, but we offer many other cultural activities to compliment these pieces of art.

2.  Do you accept credit cards?

Yes, we accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover cards at the ticket booths.

3.  Do vendors accept credit cards?

Vendors may or may not accept credit cards. It is every individual vendor’s own decision to accept credit cards and their own responsibility to set them up. However, there will be ATMs set up at the festival if cash is needed.

4.  Are there ATMs?

Yes, there will be ATMs set up at the festival.
