The Hope Floats lantern festival will be held at the Riverfront Park Amphitheater on April 2, 2022 from 4-8pm. This family-friendly event will provide a positive outlet for Montgomery area residents to honor a deceased loved one with a customizable paper lantern, which will be released at sunset on the Alabama River.
This new event will raise money to support the expansion of the Riverfront Greenway Trail to the north, from the Cypress Inlet Bridge. Once complete, the Montgomery Lions Club Segment of the existing trail will include unique elements for sensory learning and play, as well as engagement with nature, especially designed for sight-impaired children. It will also serve to extend the existing trail for all bike and pedestrian users an additional 0.6 miles to the north of Downtown Montgomery, to a new trailhead at Shady Street.
***A limited quantity of lanterns will be available for purchase at the event on a first-come, first-serve basis. Pre-orders are strongly encouraged***
