Return To Lantern Festival Main Menu

Lantern Festival features rousing taiko drum performances by Fushu Daiko, kids’ activities, traditional Japanese folk dancing and an all-day ennichi street fair. At the end of the evening, visitors watch hundreds of paper lanterns—each lit by a single candle—dot Morikami Lake, against a sky of fireworks.
