Located in Reading and home to the historic Dodge NHRA nationals, Maple Grove Raceway makes for a memorable Night Lights event.
Night Lights Events evoke renewal and inspiration to celebrate life — a reminder of how precious special moments together really are. Sending a decorated lantern into the sky to join thousands of others adorned with hopes, dreams, and messages creates an undeniably profound and unforgettable experience.
You’ll see people cry, pose, pop the question, and celebrate under the lantern-lit skies. You’ll hear joyous laughter and squeals of glee as lanterns are carried together in epic waves of love and light.

Every event is equipped with a full cleaning crew and LANTERN CHASERS who literally chase lanterns from the moment they are lit, following their trajectory, for a quick pickup. This efficient crew continues a widespread search for lanterns before we leave our event location, sweeping the area during the lantern launch and directly after. ⭐🔦
This meticulous process can take up to a full 48 hours and three separate trips, during which the area is surveyed with extensive care. We pride ourselves on using ecologically harmless lanterns that are 100% biodegradable. Our lanterns simply contain rice paper, bamboo, and natural fiber string— we are dedicated to leaving no footprint other than magic. We like to humblebrag that we leave grounds cleaner than they were when we arrived. ⭐🔦 Hope that answers your question!
There will be delicious food, music, and games. Every ticket comes with a personal sky lantern, a marker to craft your message to the skies, and a lighter to light your lantern's fuel cell. Personal fire pits for cuddling ‘n lounging around and all of your s'more roasting dreams are available for purchase for $30 each. People love to hang out by their campfire and count down to the sky lantern launch with loved ones, but we also offer activities for those who prefer to roam the Night Lights grounds.

We've worked closely with both state and local officials, as well as fire marshals, to ensure our event is executed safely and legally — especially with regard to the lighting and releasing of lanterns. Night Lights has received a permit for lighting and releasing lanterns (in most places, this practice is illegal unless you have a permit in place).
The lanterns that Night Lights uses are specially-designed. The lanterns are 100% biodegradable, flame retardant, and have a fuel cell that has a quicker burn time designed to fully burn out before returning to the earth's surface.
