Panther Island Pavilion LIT up the sky on October 16, 2021, with the Water Lantern Festival. This event, voted #1 by USA TODAY as the Best Cultural Festival, is a reoccurring fan-favorite at the pavilion! There were food trucks, vendors, music, and outdoor games for everyone to enjoy!
Participants were able to decorate their own lantern with their friends and families while enjoying the ambiance of watching the sunset on the Trinity River. As the lanterns were launched, the river slowly filled with hundreds of beautifully decorated lanterns!
