GLANCE is an acronym. Glowing Lanterns A NC Event

glance with us…

Imagine spending the day with family and friends on an amazing farm in the North Carolina countryside. As the day comes to a close and the sun begins to set, tremendous bonfires will be lit to help you stay warm and will serve as a way for you to make s’mores. As the night sky becomes dark, hundreds of people will begin lighting their lanterns. Together we will release them and the sky will be filled with the glow of hope. Carrying your dreams, wishes, prayers and thoughts with them.

SO, we invite you to come and glance with us at the night sky as we honor life. We want to help you to honor the moments and the people who have brought you to where you are today. We will help by creating an incredible experience to honor whatever it is you choose. The rest is up to you.


  • 3pm: gate opens, pick up your Lantern Kit, activities begin, music begins, food and drinks will be sold.
  • At Twilight: the bonfires will be lit so that you can make your s’mores. Additional s’mores will be available for purchase.
  • At Dark: In unison, we will release our lanterns into the night sky.
  • Afterwards: The bar area will remain open until 9pm. Afterwards, you can join us at Bar 119, adjacent to our location for more fun with two live bands. Click here for their schedule.

We’ll have music playing from the moment you arrive. There will be family friendly activities including…

  • face painting
  • a bouncy house 
  • characters
  • fire trucks
  • music
  • food and drinks
  • wake boarding demos

You’ll also be given plenty of time with your lantern and a provided marker to write messages, prayers, draw pictures, write a quote or anything else you can think of on your lantern before it gets dark. Food and drinks (soft drinks, water, and adult beverages) are available for purchase.
