Hometown Lights: a lantern launch event

Hometown Lights is a special event happening at Trinity Falls on Saturday, September 14 from 6-9. Gather for a lighted lantern launch into Lake Serenity with five courses of lite bites, beer, wine, craft cocktails & live music.

Event goers will enjoy 5 course lite bites from Rye , sip Tupps beer, wine and craft cocktails; and enjoy live music by jazz musician Corey Breedlove as they prepare their lantern and enjoy the peaceful Lake Serenity. Hometown Lights will be an evening of reflection of our blessings, those in need and the beauty of the great outdoors. Attendees will launch lighted lanterns with names of loved ones and words of contemplation onto Lake Serenity during this one-night event.

Lantern proceeds benefit The Warrior’s Keep, a non-profit organization providing outdoor therapy to veterans who have difficulty reconnecting socially.

“We are excited to bring this event to Trinity Falls,” said Robert Ditthardt, General Manager of Trinity Falls. “The Warrior’s Keep is an amazing organization that has already helped more than 300 veterans. Their belief in the healing power of the outdoors is something Trinity Falls shares.”

Among the programs The Warrior’s Keep offers is Vet-Rec, which encourages veterans to engage in hiking and camping throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area as a way to reduce stress, anxiety and depression.

$20 ticket price includes admission, lantern, 5 courses of lite bites and one serving of beer or wine. Must be 21 and up to redeem your drink ticket. Drink ticket can be exchanged for (1) ice cream ticket. Additional servings, lanterns and craft cocktails available for purchase.
