This is a fun activity for date night or to do with the kids. National Harbor is holding a lantern festival. You’ll create and decorate a traditional Chinese lantern with an LED light inside. Then your lantern and hundreds of others are released along the Potomac River at dusk to make a beautiful sight. The event runs on Saturday and Sunday evenings from 5:00 to 10:00 p.m. There will be food trucks on sight so you can grab dinner. Tickets range from $26.00 to $41.00, but the price goes up after today. You can learn more at this link.
