Lantern Festival

An Experience to Remember

Come join us for the 2014 Annual Lights on Lightning Lake Festival!

On Saturday, August 3 Manning Park comes alive with lantern building during the day and then lantern floating on beautiful Lightning Lake in the evening. Come be part of this spectacular event!

Lantern construction will take place at the Lightning Lake Day Use Area from 10am-3pm. Lantern kits are available at a cost of $15 which provides access to the materials needed to build your very own floating lantern. If all the creative construction makes you hungry, there will be a barbecue on the go from 11am-2pm.

Lantern lighting will take place at the Spruce Bay Beach, just down the hill from the Lightning Lake Campground. Lantern builders and spectators alike will begin to gather on the beach at 9:30 as the sun goes down, ready to light and launch the lanterns as the sky goes dark. Staff volunteers will be on hand to rescue lanterns and return them to shore after everyone has enjoyed the magical display.
