Interesting event overall but definitely worth the price. Admission was not worth more than $5-10. Similar to the free music events that cities/towns put on all the time.

The event was really fun. The lantern decorating was cool. Definitely could have given people more colors to decorate with (you get 1 + # of friends with you basically). Be nice if they had more food trucks too. Also, maybe they announce where best to put the lanterns relative to wind a little better so it fills the lake better.

This festival in Cincinnati was really a let down. I added an extra star because the weather was perfect, and I enjoyed the time with my friends. However, I didn't feel it was well-planned or executed. There were only three food trucks (all of which had enormous lines), and only one of the trucks sold drinks of any kind. It was certainly not worth the price of admission.

Way overpaid for what you get. The groupon was great, but the festival itself was a let down. Had fun, definitely, but the staff at the traveling festival had no idea what “VIP” entry meant, and therefore were not helpful.

Very disorganized and there weren't enough food trucks to feed everyone. Yes-outside food/drink is allowed but if you wanted to eat there you needed to get to the park at the start time so you wouldn't be in line half the night. Disappointing experience.

I was expecting this to be a good event, but turned out the other way. This ones good for kids. Its too expensive for the ticket prize. There were only three food trucks. One of the truck was out of stock by 7. Was expecting some rides and games, but it didnt have those too. We had to wait longer than the proposed time for leaving lanterns in the water. Overall it wasnt a good experience.
