Often the event takes place in comparative silence – a break from the busyness (and the business) of the Expo – a time to reflect, remember and mourn.

But the LAST Lantern Release is very different – a time to celebrate the Expo and all we’ve achieved. And we RIDE those lanterns into the heavens!

Set your windlight to midnight and join us – or watch from afar.
