water lantern festival - Columbus Ohio - water lanterns floating on lake

The Water Lantern Festival is coming to Columbus on June 3, 2023 and will be held at Franklin Park. The Water Lantern Festival is a celebration of life, love, peace, healing, connection, happiness and the human spirit. Individuals and families come together to light thousands of environmental-friendly water lanterns in a festival-like atmosphere and float them on the lake at Franklin Park.

Gates open at 6:00pm with food trucks, music and fun running until 10:00pm. At 9:00pm, participants will launch their water lanterns and light up the night. Each lantern is environmentally friendly made with rice paper and led-lights. All lanterns are removed from the water by festival staff after the event.

Each attendee will be given a wristband for entry into the festival area, and a floating lantern kit, marker for decorating your lantern, playing cards and conversation cards along with a commemorative drawstring bag and scavenger hunt ticket giveaway entry.

Prices vary from early bird pricing of 26.98 + 5.00 ticket fee to deluxe ticket and date night ticket options (two person package) which are at an additional fee. These prices increase as you get closer to the event. More information can be found on the event website.
