Sky Lantern Festival presented by UPMC Hamot and UPMC Health Plan

 

Lake Erie Speedway Sky Lantern Festival– AUGUST 10, 2019

Lake Erie Speedway Sky Lantern Festival presented by UPMC Hamot and UPMC Health Plan is based around the Chinese Paper Lantern. The locally promoted event will take place on Saturday, August 10th. The gates will open at 5pm with the launch taking place around dusk. Enjoy food, music, princesses, Star Wars Troopers, face painters, s’mores, balloon artists, inflatable bounce houses, and more while relaxing with family and friends!

Lake Erie Speedway Driven By Pro Waste Services Inc. takes pride in the events that we host and put on. We want the event to go as smooth as possible. The wind will dictate whether we launch or not. All Lanterns are biodegradable, eco-friendly, non-flammable so this aides in protection of our participants and the environment. Our lanterns do not have any metal wiring or material that will harm the environment. We will not allow outside lanterns through the gates to keep non eco-friendly lanterns from being launched. We will announce the launch time for all the lanterns. No one should launch before this time. This is an amazing sight and we want everyone to participate in it.

As a locally owned venue we will take the necessary steps to cleanup the surrounding area after the launch of the lanterns. The vast majority of the lanterns will only go a 1/4 mile radius of our venue. The lanterns we use are eco friendly and biodegradable so in the rare chance we miss a lantern they are designed to disintegrate quickly. If you would like us to come pick them up if you find them call 814-725-3303.
