There will be a Water Lantern Festival coming to Bellevue State Park in Wilmington, Delaware according to the Facebook Event Page. It was set for September 11th but has been cancelled for that date and will be rescheduled.
Lantern festivals celebrate many different emotions, and in all, togetherness. Everyone’s circumstances are different, and the emotions that come along with them make us human. “The Water Lantern Festival will bring everyone together to create an atmosphere of hope, unity, love, and happiness.”
A ticket to the event is required and will get you a floating lantern to launch on the water, a commemorative drawstring bag, a marker to decorate your lantern, and a wristband for entry into the event. (All lanterns are 100% eco-friendly, made from wood and rice paper, and will be completely cleaned up after the event by event staff.)
