A Magical 'Lantern Light Festival' Will Light Up The Jacksonville Sky Next Month
Florida will be hosting a massive lantern light festival this March.
Get ready to have another holiday and magical experience in Jacksonville. If you're looking for an Instagrammable location for your next photo shoot, you can't miss this place. The Lantern Light Festival is coming in March and it's going to be epic.
The festival will last from March 8th to May 5th. That means you have two months to go and enjoy an Insta-worthy experience. This is an outdoor event with massive lanterns that stay firmly on the ground. The festival features live performances, children's activities, and fireworks. Also, there's amazing Chinese cuisine for purchase.
You can take as many pictures as you want at this event. We recommend you come early as it can be difficult to take pictures with the lanterns when it gets busy. Miami recently hosted the Lantern Light Festival at the Miami-Dade County Fair and you can take a sneak peek below.
This event will definitely be lit. There will be over 400 lanterns that were custom-built by Chinese artisans. These lanterns are massive! Some of them are 30 feet high and up to 300 feet long. It's a magical experience where you're going to see the work of the world's best lantern makers.
The festival is open to the public Thursdays to Sundays from 6 pm to 11 pm. It costs $20 for adults and you can purchase your ticket in advance here.
The Lantern Light Festival will take place at the Morocco Shrine Auditorium that it's located at 3800 St Johns Bluff Rd S, Jacksonville, FL 32224.
