After a sold-out sophomore year RiSE Lantern Festival is set to expand into two days for 2016, Friday, October 7 and Saturday, October 8. This festival which celebrates the collective elevation of peoples’ hopes, dreams, resolutions, goals and desires – will once again take place at the Moapa River Reservation.
A limited number of pre-sale tickets will go on sale for past attendees and those signed up through the festival’s website starting Wednesday, April 13 at 9 a.m. PST.
“Over the past couple of years we have really been able to hone and refine this very special event,” said co-founder of RiSE Dan Hill. “And by expanding to two days I am looking forward to the opportunity to allow even more people to come out and experience the magic, beauty and sense of community that defines RiSE.”
Taking place at the Moapa River Reservation (approximately 35 miles northeast of Las Vegas, adjacent to Valley of Fire State Park), the gathering will feature the simultaneous release of thousands of flame-lit paper lanterns, each carrying an individual meaning and together forming something beautiful.
General tickets for RiSE Festival 2016 will go on sale May 17 at 9 a.m. PST and will range from $89-$109. Attendees can enter the event site starting late afternoon, where they will be welcomed with live music, food and activities such as lantern decorating. Parking is available on-site and shuttles from the Las Vegas Strip will also be an option for those who cannot drive themselves. Parking ($25 per vehicle) and Shuttle ($39 per person) tickets can also be purchased at risefestival.com.
