This May, Pittsburgh is going to be lighting up in a unique way! The Lantern Fest is a unique event in which thousands of Chinese Lanterns will launch from Lernerville Speedway, near the city of Pittsburgh. Last year, this one of a kind event, drew a crowd of 8,000 attendees. 
     Gates open at 4pm on May 14, 2016. Families can roast marshmallows, decorate their lanterns, and enjoy entertainment, including: a stage show, face painters, princesses, inflatables, and live music. When the sun goes down, participants will release their lanterns into the sky. 
     A portion of event proceeds will be donated to Angels of America’s Fallen. This non-profit organization provides funds and supplies for mentoring children of fallen police, military and other first responders. 
     To attend, you must have a Latern Pass which you can get here! Each pass comes with a lantern, marker, s’mores kit, and lighter. Also, be sure to check out the Lantern Fest on Facebook here
     This is sure to be an incredible evening for all in attendance. It is a family friendly event, so I hope to see you there!

This is by far the coolest thing I see today. I just love these big sized lanterns! It would be nice if they can make giant ones. I don't know how these things work. I don't know how they can make it glow. But I think it's all awesome and I would love to see one of these one day.

Yes, even I have an incredible accumulation of rock music. It makes my spirit quiet and loose. I simply cherish those high pitch sound with electric guitar. As of late I purchased rock vinyl records online from Records Plus and the sound is simply exceptional. I think vinyl records are obviously better than CDs and DVDs on the off chance that we analyze sound quality.
