Tracking & Cleanup

Clean Up; We have a “No Lantern Left Behind Policy”, we have our cleanup team stationed out in the landing zone ready to collect every lantern as they begin to descend.

We track our lanterns flight with 4 Mavic 3T Enterprise Drones, so we know exactly where every lantern flies and lands. We hold a trial run before the event date to test and determine where the lanterns will land. More Information found here

Lantern Festivals require specific weather conditions to be able to safely and legally release Sky Lanterns. 

Weather affects lantern releases in a few different ways;

Wind Speed; wind speed is the biggest determining factor in releasing sky lanterns. Releasing lanterns in high winds can be a disaster. They will blow into others, and can travel much further than supposed to if released in wind speeds higher than Fire Marshalls predetermine. 

Excessive Heat; lanterns need heat to rise however to to much heat, and humidity outside can negatively affect the lanterns flight, making it harder to take flight and/or gain the altitude needed to get the full experience of the event. They are more likely to fly into trees still lit in excessive heat. You should never release sky lanterns in drought conditions.

Rain; rain is another weather condition where lantern releases shouldn’t be held. Lanterns are made with Rice Paper so during rain they get wet and again won’t take flight, and if they do, their flight becomes unpredictable. 

Thunder Storms, Tornados, and Hurricanes; Obviously lanterns can’t be released in these weather conditions, but even more it’s dangerous to attendees. One bad part of weather can lead to another more serious and festivals can become a danger if ignored just to get an event held.

Because of this we watch the local weather closely starting two weeks before the event. If a reschedule is required, tickets will be honored at the make-up date. 

Our event is only open to those participating which requires a ticket.
