According to an ancient Chinese legend, a Chinese general used Lanterns during the second century as a means of signaling the end of a battle. For this same reason, our WBC team decided that we too shall signal the end of our Water Balloon Battle by releasing River Lanterns into Lake Jarun and announce our evening program that follows.
At our EBC event we will release Lanterns into the west coast of the Lake and while the Lanterns float freely in the dark. Our WBC team believes that our worries will disappear the same way, its time to let go of all your fear, worries and negativity, its time to release because the fire that drives the Lanterns represents the wisdom that drives the man.
The lanterns will have a different meaning for every person, for some they will light the way, for some they will be a beautiful and romantic experience while for others a great way to celebrate a birthday or as a gift or a moment of great love. All in all they will make for a memorable and magical day.
Money from Lanterns sales will go to the preservation and renovation of Jarun’s public free fitness park. Year after year visitors will enjoy the park and recreational facilities and together we strive to build a great place for all visitors to enjoy themselves while visiting the park.
