It’s Lantern Fest time again! Unless you’ve experienced Lantern Fest for yourself, it’s hard to describe the event in words. To see thousands of lit lanterns, dedicated to family members and friends floating across the night sky….it’s simply breathtaking!
This year’s Lantern Fest will be held at the Kentucky Speedway on Saturday, October 15th. The gates will open at 2 p.m, and families and friends can enjoy food, live music, a stage show, familiar princesses, face painting, s’mores, balloon artists, and more.
You’ll want to be sure to bring a blanket or chairs to sit on, a jacket in case the evening gets chilly, snacks for the evening (and why not hot dogs to roast on the fire pit?!), your dancing shoes, and money in case you want to buy a snack or a drink. Please note, no glass containers, hard-sided coolers, or outside alcoholic beverages are permitted.
Be sure to arrive early enough to park (it’s a $5 fee), check-in, and find a spot to enjoy the Lantern Fest with your family members and friends. The best part begins when the sun goes down…..when thousands of glowing lanterns will be released! This will be an unforgettable event as thousands of people come together to light up the sky.
Tickets are currently priced at $35 each for adults and $7 for kids ages 4-12 (kids 3 and under are free!). However, my readers can save an additional 10% off your ticket purchase when you enter the promotional code LFcincicents at checkout.
