At this festival, they put up 355 lanterns on a big float.

Each lantern actually had a candle inside it.

    My foot was swollen and I had enough walking for one day, so I stayed home and watched a crazy NetFlix movie. I was happy I didn’t go to the festival when I heard there was NO festival food available! We had yummy fondue when Jen, Teddy and Brittany came back, so that was good.
