Review of 2021 

Moon & Water lantern Festival

Additional Details on the events page

The KCCA Moon & Lantern Festival will go on as planned. Weather forecast predicts a good chance of rain after 8 PM in Shawnee, so we will move earlier half an hour to the planned time of lantern launching. The new Lantern launching time will be from 7 to 8 PM. All other activities will go on as planned. Please bring rain gears just in case. If you ordered the Lanterns online, please come to our Will Call Desk to show your confirmation email to get your lantern.​

It's the time of the year when we gathered as a big community family and celebrate the mid-autumn festival and to keep our tradition going. We will be releasing the beautiful water lanterns again this year! Come to join us at Shawnee Mission Park!
