Gate opening times will be announced the week of the event on our website and via email (if you have purchased tickets). 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.
