A roundup of lantern festival Arizona locations and dates so you can get tickets and enjoy the amazing experience of being a part of a lantern festival.
We’re kicking off the New Year planning a bunch of couple’s bucket list date ideas we want to make happen. One date we think every couple should do at least once is a lantern festival date night.
We shared our experience about The Lantern Fest in this post. A few years later, I’m still reeling from it and remember it as one of our all-time favorite dates! It’s at the top of our list of dates worth repeating.
Since so many event companies have changed in the past two years, it can be a little more challenging to find a lantern festival near me. So for those in Arizona also looking for a lantern festival Arizona location, we thought we’d share the roundup so you can find and attend a night lantern festival.
