The Lights Fest is an experience where thousands of friends and families gather to listen to live music, fill up on delicious food from local vendors, and light up life by sharing personal wishes, dreams, and goals. At the perfect magical moment everyone ignites their personalized sky lanterns with tiki torches and lets them take flight. It creates a surreal ambiance, where time slows down and your single flame rises and joins with thousands of others to create your own stars.
The Lights Fest is dedicated to leaving a positive impact on the environment and everyone who attends our event. This is an event that is for everyone but cultivates individual experiences. Whether you're commemorating or celebrating- you're creating a special memory that will last a lifetime.
Come celebrate as we put our inhibitions to the side, and our dreams to the sky. In one night, you can change to what you want to become. Let go of your fears, and embrace your true self. Join us as we light the fire within.

Why is the Washington DC Lights Fest held in Mechanicsburg PA?
Safety is our top priority. We choose our event locations very strategically. We cannot hold this event near city limits and we require a venue with plenty of open space so we can map out the lanterns' flight path and landing zone. This enables our clean-up crew to gather the lanterns after the event. Our lanterns are 100% biodegradable, made of rice paper and bamboo, so in the rare instance a lantern isn't collected after the event, it will not harm the environment or any wildlife that may call the area home.
