Get ready to LIGHT UP the night in Dayton during the Lantern Festival on August 31, 2018! The community is invited to decorate their porches or front yard with lanterns and to join us for our Lantern Parade around the park at 8:30 p.m.! Bring a lantern you’ve made at home, simple or elaborate, or buy one at the event from our DCDA booth. Let your creativity flow! We ask that you use battery powered LED lights or tea lights. (Please, no open flames.)
