The ancient ritual of sending floating lanterns across the water is known to have healing qualities.  In some parts of Asia it is done to commemorate the dead.  The modern practice of floating water lanterns represents life and new beginnings.  As new age methods of seeking peace and well being are becoming more popular and widespread in North America, it’s no wonder that The Water Lantern Festival has made its way to Montreal.

Each adult ticket includes a floating lantern, commemorative drawstring bag, marker, and wristband.  After coloring and designing your personal lantern, you are encouraged to write down some of your hopes and dreams, or a letter to a loved one.  Then as the sun sets, all of the lanterns are lit and sent out into the water.

The beauty of thousands of lanterns reflecting upon the water creates magical moments and stunning scenery.

In case you’re concerned for the environment, the price covers the cost of collecting and removing the lanterns from the water following the event as well as cleaning up any trash that may have been previously been in or around the water.
