Water lantern festivals are the perfect evening out. Whether it's with your friends or your bae, it's a special memory you get to create while hoping for a better future ahead. Lucky for you, The Lights Festival is coming to Houston this October, so grab your bestie and get ready to send your lanterns into the sky!

On October 12 at Houston Raceway in Baytown, you can release your personalized little ball of fire into the air by yourself, with your friends, or as a romantic date. "The Lights" tour has made its way all around the U.S., and already made a stop in Houston back in April. They're ready to bring it back, and this time will be a little bigger and even better. The festivities will begin at 3 p.m. and conclude at 5 p.m.

Before the glorious releasing of the lanterns, guests will be able to jam out to live music, enjoy food truck meals, and take time to personalize their own lantern. Tickets are $38 for adults, which includes a full kit to make your lantern. Kids 12 and under are just $12 and won't recieve a lantern  because #FireHazard! They'll get a "fun kit." Be sure to keep up to date on their Facebook page where you might find giveaway deals and discounts.

We don't get to see the stars in this city smog very often, Houstonians, so now's our chance to look up at the sky the way those country folks can. Grab your tickets, plan our your lantern art, and brush up on your I See The Lights rendition, because it's about to get lit.
