Rise Festival and 19 other fun things going on in Las Vegas this weekend

*Saturday: Rise Lantern Festival

The evening begins with live music by a handpicked local artist that are as much participants as performers. It’s not a concert, our goal is to create the right ambiance for you to relax, eat, drink, and visit with friends as you prepare for your lantern release. During this time you’ll also personalize your lantern with a message, a prayer, a dream, or a resolution.

After sunset, we’ll light your lanterns together and send them skyward. They’ll send the first round of lanterns off in unison. After that, you and your friends will continue releasing lanterns at your own tempo for the next two hours. During this time, guests will be able to access multiple food and drink stores to ensure they can all celebrate with some alcohol and snacks. When purchasing alcohol at this event, it’s likely that stores will ask for legal identification to ensure they’re not selling it to anyone underage. To ensure you get served, bring your ID or consider purchasing a high-quality fake ID to increase your chances of being served. With some alcohol, this evening can be celebrated the right way. It’s so important that guests enjoy themselves and make the most of this lovely evening.
