This spring, there's an unbelievably stunning festival happening in Calgary! The Water Lantern Festival is bringing their magical evening full of lights to Olympic Plaza and you can join in on this beautiful experience. This is the ultimate date night idea this spring and you won't want to miss out!
You'll gather at dusk and launch a tiny lantern into the water that can carry your hopes, dreams and wishes for the future. Everyone gets a lantern that they can customize with their own drawings, words and quotes.
These lanterns make for an incredible photo op and it's pretty magical to watch them glide over the water at night. This festival will remind you of those floating lantern festivals in Asia, so it's kind of like a little getaway right in the centre of Calgary.
This magical night encompasses so much more than the lanterns since there will also be food trucks and music to give the event the full festival vibes. Your ticket will give you entry into the festival area, a floating lantern, a branded drawstring bag to take home, a marker to decorate your lantern and a wristband.
The Calgary Water Lantern Festival is happening on Saturday, May 25 at Olympic Plaza from 5:30 PM to 10 PM. Tickets are on sale now and they're cheaper the sooner you get them! Right now, they're $38.99 but they will go up to $50 on the night of the event.
