Pleasant Harbor Christmas Lanterns Event

Thousands Of Lanterns To Illuminate Skies Above Lake Pleasant


October 1, 2018

Pleasant Harbor Christmas Lanterns event is scheduled for December 1.

After sundown on Saturday, Dec. 1, friends, family and thousands of event goers will come together to share personal thoughts, wishes, goals and participate in a new holiday tradition as they set free lanterns on the southeastern shores of Lake Pleasant.

A long-standing tradition, the lighting of (biodegradable) lanterns is a way of marking milestones, offering up wishes and goals, while celebrating in a festive, picturesque environment. This event will be the first time in the greater Phoenix area that a lantern festival will occur during the holiday season.

The event runs from 4:00 p.m. - 9:30 p.m. and features a live band (Faded Jeans), 40 tons of snow, photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus, 25 different food trucks, high school bands and free kids' bounce houses, not to mention some of the most amazing views in all of Arizona.

Tickets for Pleasant Harbor Christmas Lanterns are $30.00 per lantern and can be purchased online at: Ticket prices do not include entry into Pleasant Harbor which is an additional $10 gate fee per vehicle for this event. No coolers allowed; however, blankets and lawn chairs are welcome.

In April of this year, more than 10,000 people attended the inaugural Pleasant Harbor Lanterns at the Lake event held at Lake Pleasant. Due to the popularity of this event, tickets sold out prior to the day of the festival. In anticipation of a similar response, the general public is encouraged to buy tickets well in advance for this upcoming holiday lantern event.

Pleasant Harbor at Lake Pleasant is less than a 45-minute drive from downtown Phoenix and the closest entry to the lake for Phoenicians.
