Flying Lanterns, also known as Sky Lanterns, will add an exciting new element
to your party. Their sparkle can be seen flying up in the air for up to 20 minutes
and will travel several miles in distance, after which the flame will blow out
and they will gently float back down for a safe landing. Sky Lanterns will fly
to more than 1,000 feet in altitude, providing an enjoyable yet amazingly simple
show for all ages.
Flying Lanterns otherwise known as Khoom Fay in Asian cultures were used next
to fireworks in traditional Asian festivals for thousands of years. Paper lanterns
were used to celebrate the Chinese New Year and as a signaling device. The flame
would symbolize knowledge and wisdom.
The Paper Lantern is safe and easy to use. It is made of flame resistant paper, is
100% biodegradable and requires only minimal assembly. They are calm and quiet, and

entertain guests. Enjoy them a few at a time or create amazing displays by launching
