Lantern Festival 4/24/2016 - Dacona Race Track

I was so looking forward to this event out at the Dacona Race Track - and a bit anxious that there would be too much wind or rain - but last night was perfect.

It was crowded and long traffic lines, long entrance lines, a long boring wait, --
and YET...absolutely WORTH IT -

I was so mesmerized that I couldn't even get to my lantern until most of the lanterns were in the air - it was hard to look away for even a second.

Yes. I'm sad to be back.
