El Pasoans design lanterns for festival at Ascarate Park


EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – El Pasoans crafted lanterns out of rice paper and wood and pushed them onto Ascarate Lake during a Saturday celebration.

Residents put together their designs in the early evening and floated their lanterns around 9 p.m. last night. Lanterns used LED candles and the materials were recyclable materials to promote “eco-friendly” practices.

Participants wrote messages of love, hope and happiness in the vent.
