Albuquerque held it's first lantern festival Saturday Nov. 14, 2015. The event took place at Sandia Speedway where it ran from 1pm to 8pm with live music. The people gather around bonfire pits across the field. Each person received a box with materials to make s'mores and to light the lanterns that lit up the sky, sending their wishes, and hopes. At the end of the event, Fire Muse Circus performed.
