Event Day Info
Our lantern launch will take place at nightfall and is 100% dependent on the wind and the fire marshal's approval. In the unlikely occurrence that we cancel an event, our policy is to return to the city within three months of the original date. You will be contacted via email with updates and a new itinerary.
Things To Remember
