Edmonton's Romantic Water Lantern Festival Next Week Will Take Your Breath Away

Next week, there's going to be a magical festival where you'll be able to see thousands of glowing lanterns floating on the water. If you don't already have your tickets for the Edmonton Water Lantern Festival, stop everything and get them now! You don't want to miss this super romantic event that promises to be a night you'll never forget.

The Water Lantern Festival has been travelling across Canada, the United States, and Mexico, so we're thrilled it's finally arriving in Edmonton! The event will take place on Aug. 31, 2019, from 6 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. at Rundle Park!

Just like the lantern festivals in Asia, you'll have the opportunity to see thousands of floating lanterns softly glowing on the water. So make sure to have your camera ready, because it will look incredible!

At the Water Lantern Festival, you'll have the chance to decorate your lantern with the supplies provided. Everyone is encouraged to write positive messages or messages of their hopes on their paper lanterns before letting them float on the water.

In addition to the paper lanterns, there will be plenty to do! You'll be able to enjoy a delicious meal from the food trucks, listen to live music, and so much more! So get your boyfriend or girlfriend to join you at this festival, because it'll make a fantastic date night.

You'll want to buy your tickets to the Water Lantern Festival in Edmonton before they sell out. Tickets for the event are $42.99 per person until Aug. 29, and afterwards, they rise to $50 per person. Included in the price of your ticket are access to the festival, a lantern to decorate, marker, a drawstring bag, and wristband.
