Sky Lanterns (aka Chinese Lanterns)

Published by at 8:54 pm under Liveaboard Topics

This is the time of the year when the uninformed and/or uncaring people show up at Golden Gardens park to set off these floating fire bombs!  What seems “pretty” and “romantic” in the park is a disaster waiting to happen for us boaters or our neighbors on the hill during our dry summers.  These “lanterns” have landed in the rigging of boats here at Shilshole and by sheer luck we have avoided a conflagration.

These floating lanterns are illegal in the State of Washington, and 29 other states. If you see one, immediately call 911, ask for the fire dept. and report as many details as you can.
