Jacksonville Magazine's Third Annual
Jacksonville Lantern Parade
The third annual Jacksonville Lantern Parade is set for Saturday, February 15, 2020. The parade will travel from the Riverside Artist Square under the Fuller Warren Bridge down the St. Johns River to Laura Street in the heart of Downtown. The Parade itself begins at 7 PM and concludes with a fireworks show at 8:55 PM.
Prior to the official start, participants are invited to come to the starting line at 6 PM and join in the fun with live music, kids games, food trucks and more.
The illuminated celebration of creativity, family and the St. Johns River is free and open to the public. All we ask is that participants bring something that glows, twinkles or shines. Last year, more than 5,000 people turned out to continue what we believe will become one of the city’s signature annual events—a glowing display of color, light, music and movement that lights up the heart of Jacksonville.
