From 6 to 8:30 p.m. there will be food trucks, entertainment, and lantern decorating. From 8:30 to 9:00 p.m., participants will hear lantern stories, practice meditation and receive launch instructions. Lanterns will be launched from 9 to 10:00 p.m.

Musicians Craig Mecham and Scott BalSai are scheduled to perform. Various food vendors and activities will also be available for guests.

The Water Lantern Festival’s website advises attendees to bring cash for purchases from these vendors.

“I think this is a great way to bring students, friends and families together,” said Annika Anderson, a junior studying marriage and family studies. “I’ve always wanted to go to an event like this. I think it’s great that it’s so close to Rexburg.”
