Completely biodegradable lanterns are used for the festival. They're made from rice paper, string and bamboo. In addition, a clean-up crew gathers and disposes of lanterns left on the site, according to The Lights Fest.

Before watching the sky fill with thousands of glowing lights, attendees can listen to live music, dance and eat. Bringing a blanket or lawn chair is encouraged.

While waiting for summer, check out images from The Lights Fest at other venues across the country.
