St. Louis Radio: WARH Sets 2017 Lantern Fest
Hubbard's WARH 106.5 FM has announced that on Saturday, November 4, 2017, hopes and dreams will weave a tapestry of light across the night sky when The Lantern Fest returns to St. Louis.
In November 2016, more than 7,600 spectators joined the family-friendly festival, presented by 106.5 The Arch, when it stopped in St. Louis for the first time. The Lantern Fest has partnered with 106.5 The Arch again to bring the event to Brookdale Farms for another unforgettable evening.
“The event was a huge success last year,” said Lantern Fest spokeswoman Amy Gessel. “We loved working with The Arch and are excited to continue our partnership this year.”
When gates open at 2:00 p.m., families and friends can enjoy live music, a stage show hosted by the on-air personalities from The Arch, inflatables, face painting, s’mores, balloon twisters and photos with princesses. This year, event organizers have expanded food options for purchase at the venue and will also allow outside food so participants do not get hungry in anticipation of the lantern release. Later, when the sun goes down, participants will create a masterpiece of light as thousands of lanterns rise into the night sky.
“People come to The Lantern Fest for different reasons; some aim to turn over a new leaf, others to heal a broken friendship or to celebrate the life of a loved one,” said Lantern Fest representative Maxwell Christian. “However, the moment lanterns are released, all are unified under a golden sky.”
Lantern Passes can be purchased online and are required for admission to the event. Each pass comes with a lantern, marker, s’mores kit and lighter. Tickets are now available at https://st-louis-the-lantern-fest.eventbrite.com. Participants are encouraged to register before Friday, January 27 to take advantage of the current rate.
