Hundreds of sky lanterns light up in Imphal

Imphal (Manipur), Jan 11 (ANI): Hundreds of lanterns lit up the night sky in Imphal as the city hosted its first lantern festival. Residents from across the city gathered at Phambilok Children Amusement Park to release lanterns in the sky on a winter night.

Performances by local bands ensured that the enthusiasm of the participants did not dim. The organiser said he was inspired to organise the event after he saw lantern festivals on television and internet.

The wide-topped floating lanterns are made of thin paper and bamboo.
