Are sky lanterns safe? Your Source for SAFETY Information
Sky lanterns have become increasingly popular as a way to celebrate. However, they pose a serious fire safety hazard and their use is prohibited by National Fire Protection Association code requirements.
What happens to the lanterns after the Rise festival? All of the sky-lanterns, lantern packaging, cups and plates in our food court, are either biodegradable or compostable. After the event we retrieve the biodegradable lanterns from the surrounding desert as well as any pre-existing litter that we find in the desert around Jean Dry Lake Bed.
