Enjoy an evening of illumination and music in Downtown Wellen! Join your community to place hundreds of glowing lanterns in a moment of reflection and celebration. The evening will begin with a signature jazz concert by The Eighth Note Collective, a dynamic group of Orlando based musicians who bring a fresh take on Classic Jazz music. At sundown, we'll line the Grand Lake with luminary bags, followed by a magical display of projection art choreographed to the smooth sounds of jazz.

Participants will have the opportunity to personalize their luminary bag in remembrance of loved ones ahead of placing them along the lake.
