G. Lantern Fest

TLantern Festhank you for taking the first step to volunteer!  Lantern Fest is a three (3) day event and we will need your help to get it "off the ground."  We need volunteers for 5-hour shifts.  Each volunteer will received FREE parking, FREE Admission, and a FREE Lantern.

Please note:  Safety precautions are taken very seriously and will be put into practice by the local fire departments.  All clean up and safety regulations will be in place by all our volunteers.  The lanterns are exclusively sourced, 100% biodegradable, flame retardant with a limited burn time of less than 4 minutes.  They leave a very small footprint on the environment.  This will be a safe and spectacular event for families in our community.
