How The Lights Fest Adds Magic and Inspiration to Your Travels

By | What Lights You? | No Comments

I love the movie Tangled. Have you seen it? If you haven’t well, don’t worry, I won’t judge. It is that charming tale of Rapunzel, but with a Disney twist. And in this movie, the royal family release lanterns in the sky each year on Rapunzel’s birthday in hopes she will return home. High hopes that is for sure. In order to avoid ruining the movie for you my wonderful readers, I shall not tell you how it ends, but what I will tell you is that the film certainly had an influence on my decision to attend the Light Fest near Ancastor Ontario…

Ottawa – “Not Even A Video Can Explain It”

By | What Lights You? | No Comments

On September 23rd 2017 in Ottawa, Canada. Melanie and Laszlo Papp attended “The Lights Fest”  a lantern festival that is more than a festival; it’s an amazing experience. In a single moment the entire sky is filled with lights and dreams. People from all wakes of life gather together and for a brief moment everyone stands together filling the sky with “what lights them”. September 23rd was a beautiful and magical evening, one that will never be forgotten.

360 Degrees Of Light In Cleveland

When the countdown hit zero, the warm fall sky was suddenly ablaze with hundreds of sky lanterns just south of Erie, Pa., as the attendees of the Lights Fest let their lanterns take flight Saturday night.

More than 2,000 people attended the event held on the Erie County Fairgrounds to experience a sky filled with the lanterns, many of which had wishes for loved ones, drawings, and hopes and dreams written on the lanterns.

The Lights Fest also featured musicians and entertainers, including dancer/entertainer Ryan Rosinski from Cleveland, and solo artist Arthur Ward from New York. In addition to the entertainment, booths with food and merchandise were on hand, as well as sparklers to light up the night.

It was a Saturday afternoon in September. We had just gotten our new 12-seater van (or bus, if you will) which our kids promptly named “Sally.” It suited her well.

For those of you who don’t know, we welcomed 3 International students into our family in August who will be spending the whole school year living with us. Carlos is from Spain and Jerry and Evan are from different parts of China. It has been an absolute joy to have them in our lives.

So, on this particular Saturday, all 10 of us hopped into Sally and packed up the trunk with blankets and camping chairs. We headed out on our hour long drive to Wisconsin…

“It Was Magic!”

By | What Lights You? | 3 Comments

You know when you see something in a photo and you think, “I just have to be a part of that!”. Well I’ve been saying this to myself ever since I saw photos of a lantern festival. Yes, those huge white lanterns that you take out into the middle of the desert with thousands of people and everyone sends them up into the sky, creating a real live version of The Starry Night. It just feels like something you should do in your lifetime. So when my future sister-in-law told me that she and my brother were going to one in Mesquite, I jumped on it! Of course I dragged Jordan along with me; Sorry babe. But was it everything I imagined? Was a cold night in the middle of a dirt range lighting up the sky as “Van Gogh” as it looked in the pictures…I will say this…it was magic!

I actually didn’t know I was going to propose UNTIL I saw on Facebook that The Lights Fest was coming to Dallas Fort Worth. The post immediately caught my eyes, and before I knew it I was reading reviews and watching videos of the event – amidst all other thoughts going through my head, the loudest of them all was, “This is a sign. I HAVE to propose here.” Read More
