Our kids loved these.
So did the adults.
I think cars driving by weren't sure what they were. One car just stopped in the middle of the road and sat there for awhile. I wonder if he thought it was a UFO?
I understand folks send them off in bulk for weddings and bar mitzvahs and other special events all over the country. What a beautiful sight that would be.
(You can Google "sky lanterns" or "wish lanterns" and find out more information and where to order them.) What a perfect summer fun thing.... especially for kids who love fire and being out side at night in the dark!
