The festival is a production for an entire day! Live music, face painting, princesses, balloon animals, food trucks etc. We had other unexpected conflicts so we weren't able to make it until close to sundown but the s'mores were a huge hit! We need to go camping more because fire and dirt are my kids best friends.
Before letting the lanterns off, you can write messages on them or goals and send them into the sky. Zach must have not understood because he cried--again-- when we let his off. He was heartbroken that he had worked so hard on his drawing and realized it was never coming back.
On their way out they visited the fish hatchery and Benson couldn't stop commenting on all the fish.
