LIGHT THE LAKE
Join us October 5th as the sun sets on the Safari lands, to watch as over 1,000 beautiful flickering lanterns fill our lake with light during our Floating Lantern Festival!
Inspired by the Japanese Festival, Toro Nagashi, where families come together to guide departed loved-ones to the spirit world by releasing candle-lit lanterns to the sea, the Floating Lantern Festival is an enchanting evening filled with memories you won't soon forget!
Come together with family, friends, and strangers alike to decorate your own floating lantern. Celebrate the evening with live entertainment and festival treats, as you relax lakeside and watch as brilliant golden candlelight illuminates the water!
One of Aggieland Safari's missions is encouraging and supporting eco-friendly activities in the Brazos Valley. We would like to assure all of our guests that this event is
100% ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY!!!
Lanterns will be released onto our PRIVATE pond located within the Adventure Zoo, and lanterns WILL NOT be released into the sky at any point. At the festival's conclusion, ALL lanterns will be removed from the pond IMMEDIATELY and RECYCLED!
