If you have seen these, you know what I'm talking about, if not, trust me, these things are cool.

If you know where to get them in West Michigan, let me know.

Thanks!

Someone had them at Silver Lake over the 4th.

I think it's kind of stupid honestly. How cool are you going to be when you start a forest fire with one of those things?

Default lanterns

We used them at my bro-in-laws over the 4th and I agree, you have to be smart when setting them off. Probably a real windy night isn't a good idea. But these things get so much altitude, there's no way they are still hot when they float back down. Everything I read says they are biodegradable, but who knows.

how about when lit, it fly's, as hot air rises and it wont come down until the flame is out for a while, and the air cools down then it biodegrade or gets pick up by some guy that is pissed cus it landed in his pool
