About The Lantern Fest
Historically, Chinese Lanterns were used to symbolize good fortune, request favorable weather and celebrate the lives of loved ones. In 2014, The Lantern Fest, owned by Sack Lunch Productions Inc. (OTC:SAKL), transformed this ancient tradition into a family-friendly festival with food, music, s’mores and children’s entertainment. When the sun goes down lanterns will paint the sky in a spectacular release. The Lantern Fest is growing rapidly, and now holds events all over the country.
