Lanterns at the Lake at Lake Pleasant

Soon after sundown, on Saturday, April 14th, friends, family and thousands of strangers will come together to share personal thoughts, wishes and goals as they set free lanterns on the southeastern shores of Lake Pleasant. A long standing tradition, the lighting of (biodegradable) lanterns is a way of marking milestones, offering up wishes and goals, while celebrating in a festive, picturesque atmosphere. This event marks the first time that the Phoenix area’s Westside will host a lantern festival and also a first to take place at an Arizona lake, with the 10,000 acre lake water surface certain to be aglow with thousands of lighted lanterns. The event runs from 4:00 p.m. - 9:30 p.m. (lanterns to be released after sundown) and features live music, food trucks, kids’ events and some of the most amazing views that the greater Phoenix area has to offer. No coolers allowed, however blankets and lawn chairs are welcome. Admission is $25.00, with children ages 3 and under free. Lake entry fee is waived for ticket holders to this event, but proof of purchase must be shown at the entry gate.
