RiSe Lantern Festival Lights Up the Las Vegas Sky for the First Time October 18
Watch thousands of lanterns float above the desert at the RiSE Lantern Festival. For the first time, 20,000 personalized sky lanterns will rise above Las Vegas in a transformative event that brings hope, optimism, and inspiration to a centuries-old tradition. 

The festival, which includes music from Joshua James, is more than a beautiful evening. With biodegradable lanterns and a 500-person cleanup crew, RiSE is as good for the earth as it is for the soul. For more information, visit
