How long does the lantern launch last?

Our lantern launches last anywhere between 15 and 35 minutes, depending on the location and size of the event. Lanterns will need to wait to be lit, until the countdown begins.


We don’t post an exact time for the launch because the launch time is dependent on weather and wind conditions and fire marshal approval, but it typically takes place anytime between sunset and 90 minutes after sunset.

Pay special attention to the stage for updates and a countdown to launch.
