The Lights, Birmingham - June 8th, 3:30 pm to 9:00 pm
This event is not actually in downtown Birmingham, but for a short drive out of the city you can make memories that will last a lifetime. The Lights Fest is an experience where thousands of friends and families gather to listen to live music, fill up on yummy food, and light up life by sharing personal wishes, dreams and goals. At the perfect moment everyone ignites their personalized sky lanterns with tiki torches and lets them take flight. It creates a surreal ambiance, where time slows down and your single flame rises and joins with thousands of others to light up your life.
