The RiSE Lantern Festival was held this past weekend in the desert about 30 miles northeast of Las Vegas. Tens of thousands of people showed up to all release lanterns at the same time and ‘bring light to darkness’. The lanterns themselves are decorated with special messages, prayers or other special expressions.
For us Disney fans the lantern festival is a real life recreation of the amazing lantern moment in the Disney animated movie ‘Tangled’.
