Lanterns are the central theme of Chapel Hill LIGHTUP Festival. Family and friends can make and decorate their very own Chinese lanterns.
Create a LIGHTUP!
Your stories, your hopes, and your dreams are what make each lantern special. Create your own lanterns with guidance from local artists and volunteers. (Cost $3 for each 10“ or 12” LIGHTUP lantern)
Ready, Set, LIGHTUP!
End the evening with a lantern parade around University Place. Thousands of lanterns will usher in wishes for peace and happiness in the New Year as we come together to create a spectacular sight!
