Lantern Light Festival

Good morning loves! Last night my parents & I went to check out the Lantern Light Festival down in Puyallup, WA. If I'm correct, this their first time touring around the states. The festival starts at 5pm. Just in case we arrived at 4:15pm to a virtually empty parking lot. As 4:30 approached though, the parking got full almost instantly & a 40 foot long line formed from the gates. Boy, did we understate the popularity of this!

To Avoid the Lines

I suggest buying your tickets online. First of all, they're cheaper that way. Online, they're $23 per adult, but when we got to the gate, they ended up being $24.50 per person. Secondly, a large majority of that 40ft+ line, are people waiting in line for tickets. It's January. It's cold! If you've already bought your tickets online & printed them out to be scanned, then you can walk around that entire line & check in at the window to your far left. It's a much shorter line & you be in before you know it!

Inside you'll find a pretty endless stream of light fixtures to keep you occupied. From a photography standpoint, this place had endless possibilities for me! If only they allowed you in before sunset, but all in all, we had fun. I hope you end up checking it out! :) - Jen
