Thousands of lanterns floated into the night sky about 30 miles northeast of Las Vegas during the @risefestival Saturday night. Thanks to #abc7eyewitness @lifenaturelvr for this photo from the two-day event. The festival promotes bringing "light to darkness" by having people release lanterns at the same time that have special messages, prayers, dreams or other creative forms of expression on them. This year’s festival took on even more meaning, with many honoring the victims and the families of the Las Vegas shooting. Organizers say they are able to retrieve 100% of the biodegradable lanterns, and they have a “Leave No Trace” cleanup policy.
