We've all seen Tangled right? That amazing scene of lanterns filling up the sky...or maybe you've seen all the photos on Pinterest of Lantern Festivals around the world. In fact, I totally watched Tangled today with Aiko. The lantern scene is quite breathtaking, even if it's a cartoon.

Well, now, Salt Lake City is going to have their own and The Salt Project has a 10% discount for our readers!

 "At The Lantern Fest, thousands of revelers join together armed with lanterns for one unforgettable spectacle. There will be music, dancing, s’mores and, when the time is just right, we will light the sky with our highest hopes, deepest regrets, and fondest dreams.

These lanterns are 100% biodegradable. Not to mention after each release we have professional “Lantern Chasers” that will make those armored truck driving meteorologists look like your local news’ weatherman. These lantern experts collect 90% of the lanterns after the event.

Historically lanterns were used to symbolize good fortune, request favorable weather, or to celebrate the life of a loved one, just to name a few. But here in 2015, we don’t care if you are turning over a new leaf or just snapping some sweet shots for Instagram.

Families and friends can dance to the music, roast marshmallows, munch on snacks provided by local vendors, and of course, watch the lanterns float away in an unforgettable release.

Each registrant will receive their own lantern as well as some other goodies."

Gates open at 3pm. Be sure to arrive on time if you would like to have a fire pit.
Lanterns will fly when the sun goes down (usually between 7:00 pm and 10:00 pm)
Helpful Tips


A blanket or chairs for sitting
A jacket in case you get chilly
A smile, because you’re never fully dressed without it
Some money or a credit card to buy a snack or drink
Your dancing shoes!

Oh and one more thing, please try to carpool. The venue will be charging $5 a car for parking.

My husband and I want to go so bad! Our anniversary is around then and it would be the perfect romantic adventure for us to have! I'm glad they are allowing it to happen here. I've been wanting to attend one of these for a while! :)

I love love all the pictures I see from these. It's so exciting to have one closer to home rather than across the world!
