Its was cancelled on original day and sice I purchased from a third party I dont get a refund
very cool, the sky looks so unreal!
Amazing experience! I can’t wait to go again! 😍😍😍😍
The actual lighting is spectacular. Long wait. Not much to do before
I went to this event with a few friends and it was such a fun experience. I wish I would have gotten there a little sooner but it was overall unforgetful.

the sending off of the lanterns was more than I expected. Very moving. Have recommended it to others. However before the event was disappointing. Dry dusty area. Really nothing to do and no quality food
It was amazing but they need waaaay more food trucks.
Freaking amazing. Just remember to put your phone down for a minute and admire the beautiful view of lanterns.
It was an amazing experience! I hope this voucher is offered again next year.
The location near Florence, AZ was the second time I attended the Lantern Fest. The check in using Groupon was a hassle. The food/drink vendor lines were too long meaning we spent most of our time at the Lantern Fest standing in lines. We also got stuck in the parking lot for over an hour after the event ended. Will still attend in the future, but the organizers have A LOT to work on.

From Our Editors
The Lantern Fest takes inspiration from the ancient Asian tradition of releasing lanterns into the air to honor a loved one, bring about good fortune, or symbolize a new beginning. Of course, attendees may sign up for whatever reason they choose, even if it's just to get a cool picture for Instagram. The nighttime event is open to all ages, with registrants 16 and older receiving their own lantern and additional freebies. Though the lanterns are flame retardant, there will be fire-safety professionals on hand just in case. And even though the lanterns are biodegradable, the event's lantern chasers generally recover 99 percent of those released. After the lanterns are lit and sent skyward, participants can spend the rest of their evening visiting food trucks, making s'mores, taking in live music, or shopping for handmade wares from local vendors.
