Hey, Night Lighters!
We’re looking forward to a great night and can’t wait to see all the lanterns sailing up into the night's sky.
This page has all of our best tips and important info so you can prep for the perfect night!

Unfortunately, the weather isn't cooperating with us so we are combining both nights into one, epic launch.
Sunday the 17th has been rescheduled to Saturday the 16th.
Event Date: Saturday, September 16th, 2023
Location: Pocono Raceway
Address: 1234 Long Pond Rd, Long Pond, PA 18334
Enjoy food, games, music, and entertainment. The event area is general admission, so the earlier you are, the better spot you’ll have.
This is so you can avoid traffic, collect your lanterns, get settled, and enjoy the live music vibe. The gates won’t close after then, but the lanterns don’t wait for those who are late.
We don’t post an exact time for the launch. The launch time is dependent on weather & wind conditions and fire marshal approval but it typically takes place anytime between sunset and 90 minutes after sunset. Please pay special attention to the stage for updates.
Plan on 30-60 minutes to exit parking areas. Feel free to hang out a bit after the launch to avoid getting stuck in traffic.
When you purchased your tickets, you should have received an email with your ticket barcodes.
It really speeds things up if you can print your tickets in advance and bring them with you.
If you don’t have access to a printer, pull them up on your phone and take a screenshot because the cell service might be spotty at the venue.
Search your inbox and check your spam/junk folder — sometimes the emails land there.
If you still can’t find them, click the button below to open a request with our customer service team. They are awesome and they’ll get back with you fast.
If all else fails, GO TO THE EVENT. Our team can look up your order with your name, email, or phone number at the yellow check-in tents.
If you added Priority Access to your order, you should receive a kit with your wristbands, a copy of the waiver, and a few other goodies.
You should have a special email and text message with all of these details.
If you have a Priority Access Kit, here’s what you need to do:
Each member of your group over the age of 18 will be required to sign a waiver in order to enter the event.
We’ll have plenty of waivers and pens at the check-in tents, but you can save yourself some time by filling it out in advance and bringing it with you.
Anyone 17 and under will need a signed waiver from their parent or legal guardian. Bring a printed copy of this waiver so you don’t have to wait in line.
We get a lot of questions about coolers, pets, chairs, and blankets.
If you’ve been to our events you know the food truck lines can get long. With an increased capacity at this event, we want to make sure you have what you need. If you want to play it safe, we’ve worked with the venue to allow you to bring outside food, sealed water bottles, and small coolers (something you can carry over your shoulder).
NO OUTSIDE ALCOHOL WILL BE ALLOWED.
Each ticket includes a lantern, lighter, and marker. Additional lanterns are available for purchase at the event.
Radiate™ portable campfire pits are sold separately for $50 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 $20.
Kit includes two roasting sticks, graham crackers, and enough stuffed 'mallows to practice and make about eight finished s'mores.
We have cool tees, hoodies, blankets, chairs, and other goodies available for purchase at the event.
Tickets are required for all attendees ages 7 and older. Children under 6 enter for free.
Our number 1 priority is holding a safe event that brings the community together to make magical memories. Because Night Lights takes place in outdoor venues, it is highly dependent on the weather including rain, wind, and lightning.
While we will never cancel an event because of weather or environmental conditions, conditions may necessitate a postponement to a later date. If this happens your tickets will automatically transfer to a new make-up date.
Similar to a sporting event or concert, Night Lights Event has a no-refunds policy. If you purchased tickets and cannot attend, you may qualify for a transfer or future credit, but you will not be eligible to receive a refund unless you purchased Ticket Protection. All ticket transfers and refund requests must be submitted BEFORE the date of the event.
There will be a security checkpoint to enter the venue. Save yourself time by bringing a CLEAR bag.

Using prayer flags to spread positivity in your community is a simple yet powerful way to make a difference. Your Prayer Flag will hang at this event and be taken to future events on our tour—all across the US! As the wind gently blows, the flags spread positive intentions and inspire all of us. Take a moment to reflect on what you wish to promote and inscribe it on a flag. Whether it be love, compassion, or peace, sharing your message with others can help create a more positive and harmonious world.
In addition to promoting positivity, creating prayer flags can also be a personal and reflective experience. The act of choosing a message or mantra to inscribe on the flag can help you clarify your own values and intentions. It can also be a way to express gratitude or set intentions for the future.
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.
Lighting your lantern will take about 5 minutes. You’ll want to get the fuel cell burning and then hold it close to the ground so it fills up with air like a hot air balloon.
We’d love if you tagged us @nightlightsevent and used the hashtag #nightlightsevent so we can see your photos, videos, and stories.
Please share this page with everyone in your group so they are prepared.
We can’t wait to see you under the night lights!
