Clean Up

How Do We Track And Cleanup Our Lanterns?

Light The Night only uses Premium ECO Friendly Water Lanterns that are designed and manufactured by our company.

Details; Our Water Lanterns are made with Eco Friendly Rice Paper, Wood, and an LED Tea Light instead of real fire.

Clean Up; We have a no lantern left behind policy and use boats and an above water line (like swimming areas use to rope off designated swimming areas) that prevents the lanterns from going any further than predetermined. WE DO NOT USE fishing nets that go down into the water which can tangle up marine life.

Safety; There are no safety risks with Water Lanterns. No fire is used in their release, they’re made of Eco friendly material, and most importantly we collect every single lantern, and we do not use fishing nets or anything that goes down into the water to stop their flow, but instead an above water line.

We track our lanterns with a Mavic 3 Cine Drone so we know none get out of the designated area.

Yes! 1 Lantern comes free with each adult admission pass. We charge for admission, not per lantern.

Yes! Our events are not open or free events. You can find more information on this on our “How It Works” page.

Yes! However, they do not come with admission because an adult must purchase one for their child, and be the one to help them SAFELY, release their lantern. Our Kids Lanterns are also child size and also a life long keepsake.
