Each year we remember and give thanks.
At Memorial Day Lantern Launch we gather at dusk to honor of fallen soldiers and loved ones who have passed away. Hundreds of atendees from all over Katy & Cy-Fair gather at sunset to take part in this beautiful memorial celebration on the lake. Community members, including several military veterans, write heartfelt messages on more than 500 paper lanterns to those living and those who have passed away. Guests enjoy patriotic music before releasing the lanterns into the lake at sunset.
“We are grateful for those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for us and our country, and are honored to be able to host this event to remember them and other loved ones who have passed,” said Kent Puckett, General Manager of Towne Lake. “Our community enjoyed the Lantern Launch, and we hope to make this an annual commemoration.”
“The lanterns create a beautiful image out on the lake,” said Puckett. “It's a great end to a holiday weekend, and something we hope will continue to be a Towne Lake tradition.”
