The Lights Festival

This past weekend, the husband and I, along with a bunch of our close friends attended The Lights Festival in Willows, CA. It was a first for all of us. The event begins in the late afternoon (around 2pm) and goes into the evening. It’s basically a huge social gathering with food, music and dancing. It’s a family event and kid friendly, which is a plus. Each ticket receives a lantern and marker to decorate with. Everyone’s lantern was unique. Some drew on it, personalized it with their goals and dreams, a prayer or a ‘hello’ to a family member who passed. As soon as it got dark, the event hosts showed us a video and demo, which got everyone hyped up and once we got the green light, we lit our lanterns and released them into the sky in unison. It was the most beautiful sight I’ve ever seen and experienced. I’ve never had a breathtaking moment, until this. It was emotional, sentimental, and meaningful. Being surrounded by your loved ones made it that much more special.

Raf and I just posted the vlog for this day and it is now our favorite vlog to date. We’re pretty proud of this one. Check it out in the link below!
