Thousands of lanterns return to illuminate skies above Lake Pleasant.
Soon after sundown, on Saturday, April 6, friends, family and thousands of event goers will come together to share personal thoughts, wishes and goals as they set free lanterns on the southeastern shores of Lake Pleasant. A long-standing tradition, the lighting of (biodegradable) lanterns is a way of marking milestones, offering up wishes and goals, while celebrating in a festive, picturesque atmosphere.
Last year’s inaugural Lanterns at the Lake event attracted more than 10,000 visitors. The event runs from 5 p.m.-9:30 p.m. (lanterns to be released after sundown) and features live music, food trucks, kids’ events and some of the most amazing views that the greater Phoenix area has to offer.
Tickets are $30.00 per lantern and can be purchased online at www.pleasantharbor.com. Ticket prices do not include entry into Pleasant Harbor which is an additional $10 gate fee per vehicle for this event. The general public is encouraged to buy tickets in advance. Lantern tickets are expected to sell out. No coolers are allowed. However, blankets and lawn chairs are welcome.
Pleasant Harbor at Lake Pleasant is less than a 45-minute drive from downtown Phoenix and the closest entry to the lake for Phoenicians. Pleasant Harbor is open to the public 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. For more information, please visit www.pleasantharbor.com or call the Pleasant Harbor events line at 623-203-5173.
