FAQs


Is This Safe?

Yes! We have made Safety the cornerstone of our business practice. Even though we utilize extremely safe, custom lanterns, we hire outside fire professionals who specialize in wildfire control throughout the US. These certified personnel help us better understand each individual region, and provide us with customized fire action plans and the on-site resources to combat any situation.

When and Where Can I Launch My Sky Lantern?

Due to safety concerns, Lanterns are only permitted to be launched at the authorized time and place. Lanterns are not to be purchased for use outside of the venue. Participants who fail to abide by these rules may be subject to prosecution by local fire authorities and law enforcement.

Can I Exchange My Ticket for a Different Date Or Location?

Unfortunately, our ticket platform does not allow for tickets to be transferred to a new date or location.

Refunds and Transfers

Though we don’t allow refunds, we’ve made it simple to transfer your purchased ticket into a new name. The new ticket holder will just need to bring their transferred ticket to “Check In”, and fill out a new waiver before being admitted into the event. California Residents can fill out the form here https://www.thelightsfest.com/refunds/ to request a refund.

What If The Event Is Cancelled?

In the unlikely occurrence that we cancel an event, our policy is to return to the city within three months of the original date. You will be contacted via email with updates and a new itinerary.

Alcohol

Alcohol is not permitted at the event.

What to Bring

Make your experience comfortable by bringing collapsible chairs, blankets, etc. If you want to travel light, feel free to purchase these items at our on-site merchandise tent.

What Is In My Swag bag?

Each adult ticket purchase comes with a Sky Lantern, and a burlap sack containing a marker, keychain, and flashlight.

VIP vs Early Bird Registration?

The difference between the “VIP” ticket and the “Early Bird” ticket is the price. Those who have managed to save their spot on their city’s event page will get VIP access to registration. After VIP tickets are sold out, early bird registration will begin, followed by other pricing tiers.

Animal Attendees

We love your pets! … but they’re not allowed at the event. We do make exceptions for service animals with their current NSAR paperwork. Keep in Mind that loud music and the possibility of fireworks may provide an uncomfortable atmosphere for your service animal.

Why Is The Event Not Located In The Actual City Listed?

Due to safety regulations, The Lights FestivalTM is unable to hold events within city limits. To ensure we produce a safe and magical evening, Fire Marshals require our events to be held at venues with sufficient acreage and away from homes and businesses.
