Sky Lanterns Festival
- hhanks, CNN iReport producer
On March 3, 2013 hundreds of people had gathered in a park in Bucharest, the capital city of Romania. Even though the event had been officially canceled just 6h before the starting of the festival, it didn’t stop people from gathering in the park, and in just few minutes the sky was covered by dozens of blue, green, red and yellow lanterns.
The event was organized with the purpose of celebrating the beginning of spring but it also managed to bring a smile upon the faces of those present at the festival. And so, couples, families and children, made a wish as they released the sky lanterns.
