Help ‘Light up the Night’ by setting loose candle-powered lanterns into the night sky.

The Rotary Club wants you to head on down to Transfer Beach Feb. 18 and help ‘Light up the Night’ by setting loose candle-powered lanterns into the night sky.

Light up the Night gets underway at 7:30 p.m. at Transfer Beach. As well as celebrating Rotary’s 111th birthday the event will raise funds to aid in polio eradication.

People will release floating, biodegradable Chinese lanterns, each costing $5, into the night sky.

“Come down with the family and enjoy a serene and awe inspiring moment,” says a Rotary release.

The lanterns are to be released at 8 p.m.
