Water Lantern Festival Aug. 31
The Water Lantern festival was originally intended to take place back in May but was rescheduled due to rain. The rain date has provided us with new opportunity to be a part of the magical evening Aug. 31. This festival will be held at Lake Reidsville with gates opening at 5 p.m. There will be local food trucks, awesome music and plenty of fun to kick the night off before lighting the lanterns at sunset. Each person will have the opportunity to design their own lantern to reflect messages of love, hope and happiness. Tickets sell out fast, so be sure to visit WaterLanternFestival.com to secure your spot for this wonderful night. Fun for all ages!
