Night Lights Pittsburgh is an event to be experienced! You will be greeted upon your arrival at the festival gates, pick up your goody bag and make your way to the festival grounds, where you will claim your spot! While we await the approach of nightfall and the lantern release, you can partake in fun games and activities such as Cornhole, Can Jam and Bocce. Enjoy local musicians will be performing on stage, and be sure to visit the many food trucks onsite as well. Sponsor and vendor tents will also be available for you to shop at and peruse! You will also use this time to decorate your lanterns with the materials provided in your goody bag!
As darkness approaches, festival staff members will light the Tiki Torches throughout the festival grounds, signalling that the focal point of the evening is near...one that is 700 years in the making.
The tradition has been modernized as individuals are encouraged to decorate their floating water lanterns with meaningful words, so as they float down the water, participants let go of the past and ask for good luck in new beginnings as they watch the light move from the darkness.
Be sure to get your tickets early!
