We were so excited to attend the Lake Chelan Winterfest Lantern Festival. I’ve always wanted to go. It was a super cold 10 degrees out, but nothing would stop me and my kids, Andre and Alyssa, from attending.
Everyone lined up along the shore at Manson Bay Park. We were given lanterns and encouraged to write our wishes or something that we were thankful for. This one really touched my heart.
We lit our lanterns, whispering our wishes and hopes for the new year and lifted them to the sky. It was amazing to watch the joy and wonder on everyone’s faces as their lanterns floated above..
Up, up, up they went, carrying our hopes and dreams into the night sky.
The Lantern Festival was just one of the many fun and exciting events during Lake Chelan’s annual Winterfest. Winterfest runs through the second and third weekends of January.
