1000 Lights: More Than Just a Festival



Lila Miller, A&E Editor

Find purpose and connection at Lake Mayer this Saturday at the 1000 Lights Water Lantern Festival. Attendees pre-purchase lighted water lanterns and launch them into the tranquil waters of the lake at sunset March 9.

The act of releasing the water lanterns serves many purposes. The festival originated as an Eastern practice to bring communities together, mourn the loss of a loved one, or welcome new beginnings.

1000 Lights Festival is the first of its kind to come to Savannah’s picturesque Lake Mayer this weekend. The event helps friends, family, and loved ones gather together and celebrate hope through tradition. The event will also feature entertainment, food and games.
