The Lights Fest

Last year, Viive Events brought its Lights Fest to the Hancock County Multi-Purpose Arena for the first time. This event strives to bring thousands of people together through live musical performances, great food, and the sharing of personal dreams and goals.

The festival is capped by the release of fire lanterns into the night sky each personalized with dreams, wishes, and dedications to others. The experience of watching the lanterns float away creates a surreal ambiance amid a backdrop of hundreds of other flickering lights during this special time of reflection and remembrance.

Light Fest Returning in December 2019
