Join us for the inaugural Fayette County Skylights Festival!
Our mission is to bring together people in a positive and welcoming environment.
Your ticket includes admission into the festival grounds, access to any of the games and activities that are available, one lantern, markers and a goodie bag. You may purchase additional lanterns at our merchandise tent. The entry fee also covers the cleanup and removal of the lanterns and any trash from the water and festival area.
Gates open at 4:30 pm. Musicians will perform every hour starting at 5 pm. The lantern launch takes place around dusk and will continue until all participants have had a chance to launch their lanterns. During this time you will be able to visit our vendors, enjoy great food from the food trucks, participate in some of the games and decorate your lantern.
The airborne lanterns are set in motion by the rising hot air generated by the flame inside. As the hot air builds up, the lantern fills and begins to rise on its journey towards the heavens. Launched singularly, it is beautiful to watch. Launched in numbers, it can take your breath away!
All lanterns used by Schemm Productions are 100% biodegradable. However, our crews will clean up all the lanterns as well as any other trash so we leave the facility as good if not better than how we found it.
Schemm Productions is a for-profit company. We donate to various charities and non-profits for each event that we run. Additionally, we sponsor a drive at each event to benefit a local organization such as a food bank or pantry.
