While the cutter races may be cancelled for the day’s festivities at the Thames Festival, the remainder of the festival is still going with fireworks scheduled for this evening to end the festival and to symbolically signal the end of summer in London. With this festival, there is plenty still left to do if you can make it and even if you cannot, a launch of sky lanterns this evening to celebrate this festival or to simply mark the end of summer is a great way to end the day. With different styles of sky lanterns to choose from and great pricing there is no limit to how to use sky lanterns, nor how many.

Sky Lanterns on the Thames

Jumping the gun on the official fireworks for the Thames festival with a launch of sky lanterns into the evening sky is not only a great way to help get the crowd ready for the fireworks but a great way to show the contrast between these two stunning entertainment forms. There is a delicate beauty to the sky lanterns, with their graceful takeoff, bright colours and silent flight compared to the in your face brightness and noise of fireworks. For many who have never seen floating lanterns in action, their launch could make them wish for more rather than the fireworks. However, the Thames is one of the best launching points in the world for fireworks because of the use of barges on the river for the launch. This year, the designer of the fireworks display is Mike Jones, who has won numerous creative awards for his fireworks displays.

Missing the Thames Festival? Use Sky Lanterns at Home

While their display value is arguable compared to a internationally recognized fireworks artist working with a huge budget, a launch of sky lanterns from one’s home is the better choice. Aside from potential legal issues and the aggravation of neighbours unable to watch their favourite shows in peace, fireworks put off an odour and are highly unpredictable. Floating lanterns, on the other hand have no issues with pollution from their fuel source and will fly on a very easily predictable flight path each and every time. With a light breeze, they will climb up quickly and catch the breeze and float in that direction. They are not to be used in high winds, nor are fireworks for that matter, but fireworks use a violent means of propulsion that can easily go awry without any warning. wishes those who go to the Thames festival an excellent time. With many different things to do, from music to craft booths set up all over London, the festival atmosphere can be intoxicating and this day will be an enjoyable and memorable one for all of those who go. Even if you do not get to, celebrate the end of summer in your own unique way. From a launch of sky lanterns saying goodbye to summer and hello to fall to other activities, we hope you enjoy your weekend.
