Ready to shine, glimmer and shimmer? Then attend the Lantern Fest at the Wild West Motorsports Park, just 15 minutes from downtown Reno. The experience is hard to explain; breathtaking, profound and emotional, it illuminates the human spirit. Before sundown, friends and families enjoy food, live music, a stage show, princesses, face painting, s’mores, balloon artists, and more. Then, when the time is just right, you’ll light the night sky with your highest hopes and fondest dreams. The experience will be moving and inspiring.
