Have you ever wanted to watch Green Lake come to life with thousands of paper lanterns? Well you’re in luck because you’ll have not one, but two chances to see just that this fall. The first being Luminata and the second being the Water Lantern Festival.

The Water Lantern Festival takes place on Saturday, October 7th and invites Seattleites to come together to “create a peaceful, memorable experience.”
