A mesmerizing festival of light is about to debut in the DFW area that will see thousands of sky lanterns simultaneously rise skyward.
Taking place on Saturday, December 17th, The Lights Fest will bring its magical experience to Ennis for a special one-night-only event having dazzled spectators in several US cities.
Guests can expect family-friendly entertainment, local food trucks, uplifting music, Christmas lights, light installations, a Nativity scene, and more from 2pm through sunset .
As nightfall draws nearer thousands of attendees will then begin decorating their sky lanterns and once it is dark all sky lanters will be released at the same time showering the sky in a sensational spectacle of thousands of rising sky lanterns.
“People of all backgrounds and beliefs can come together to have an uplifting, positive, and unforgettable experience!” reads the The Lights Fest website.
“Some participants use the lantern release as a way to honor lost loved ones. Some will write on their lanterns a list of their hopes and dreams for the future, while others will use it as a way of letting-go of things from their past. Some come to just enjoy food, live music, dancing and the breath-taking sight of lighting the sky with thousands of lanterns!”
Dubbed “The Light, A CHRISTmas Celebration” it will also be a celebration of the birth of Christ and “the true meaning of Christmas”.
