You Can Go To A Massive Latern Festival Coming To Ontario Next Month

You've no doubt at one point come across beautiful, awe-inspiring photos of hundreds of lanterns lighting up the night sky. 

These types of lantern festivals happen all over the world, originating in Asian countries such as China and Taiwan. You've probably also wondered where you can attend such a festival without getting on a plane to some remote country. Well, your lantern dreams could all come true next month.

Oshwekan, Ontario, located about an hour out of Toronto, is holding a festival just like this on September 30th, 2017. Tickets are available here and your ticket includes a packet to be picked up at the event. The packet contains a lantern, marker, and key chain flashlight. Why a marker? To write your a wish you'd like to come true, a loved ones name who you are thinking about, a fear you want to let go of; you can have your lantern symbolize anything you want!
