If you have ever had the chance to experience a water lantern festival, you know the beauty and serenity that it can produce.

Well, Tampa and Spring Hill is happy to be hosting a Water Lantern Festival this weekend!

The festival begins on Saturday, March 14th. from 5p – 10p. The Water Lantern Festival is all about joining together, and connecting with others. This magical night is shared by cities around the world… and it’s now coming to Tampa Bay.

The evening’s festivities will include food trucks, games, activities, vendors and musical entertainment. But the real joy of this night will be in setting your own personally made water lantern sailing off, full of love, hope and happiness. Then as you watch, your lantern joins with a thousand more lanterns, making a sight of beautifully adorned lanterns of hope. Together, they all reflect upon the water and light up the night. It’s really spectacular!

Those that have experienced it say, “It’s a night that you’ll never forget”.
