You can arrive at any time up to launch, but if you're going to cut it close we suggest getting there by sunset. The gates won’t close after sunset, but the lanterns don’t wait for those who are late. We recommend arriving within 2 hours of the gates opening. This is so you can avoid traffic, collect your lanterns, get settled, and enjoy the live music, games, and other activities. Watch for an email the week of the event with gate opening times for your event.
