Dear Night Lighters,

We can’t wait to welcome you to Night Lights this weekend!

We wanted to share our pro tips and important info so you can prep for the perfect night.

Your Tickets

When you purchased your tickets, you should have received a link where you can access your e-tickets.

If you ordered skip the line, a package should arrive to you 7-14 days prior to the event. 

Ideally, you should print your tickets in advance. If you can’t print them, pull them up on your phone and take a screenshot because the cell service might be spotty at the venue.

If you are still having issues, reply to this email and we’ll try to help you out. And if all else fails, GO TO THE EVENT. We’ll be able to help you at the big blue registration tent. 

Remember, you’ll need a signed waiver to enter the event. You can save a lot of time if you print out a copy and sign it before.

How to Release Your Sky Lantern

What to Expect

We’ll be hanging out together listening to live music, eating s’mores, eating from the food trucks, and playing games.

Arriving on time ensures you can choose a great picnic spot and enjoy the festival. Please take your travel time into consideration and plan accordingly.

The lantern launch is something we all do at the same time… It’s much safer and more beautiful this way. :) Please listen for announcements. We promise — you’ll know when to start getting your lanterns ready.

Included With Your Tickets

Each ticket includes a lantern, lighter, and marker. More lanterns are available for purchase at the event.

Available For Purchase at the Event

Fire Pits:

Radiate™ portable campfire pits are sold separately for $30 each. As seen on Shark Tank, these portable fire pits are perfect for roasting marshmallows and keeping warm at our events! 

Please note we have a limited quantity of fire pits. First come first serve!


S’more Kits will be available for purchase at the event for $10. 

Each kit includes marshmallows, graham crackers, Hershey’s chocolate, and roasting sticks to make 8-10 s'mores.

To keep social distancing as you leave the venue please wait until the first letter of your last name is called. 

Feel free to take your time leaving the festival grounds and wait out the traffic!

Get in some extra snuggles and share stories under the stars fireside (make sure to snag a Radiate fire pit when you enter) or join our socially distant dance party. We'll be closing out the festivities with a killer playlist.
