IPSWICH ILLUMINATED: Jessie’s Floating Wish Lanterns Shine to Remember & Celebrate

Jessie’s Floating Wish Lanterns floating past canoeists loading firewood onto bonfires in past Ipswich Illuminated event.

Jessie’s Floating Wish Lanterns return to the river and Ipswich Illuminated this year on the evening of October 5th. Come by to write a wish, light a light, and set it adrift on the river. Participation is free; donations support seasonal programming for pediatric cancer patients at Childrens Hospital Boston and Dana Farber, plus other sites.

Kayakers retrieve the lanterns and candles at the end of the evening, for fire safety and environmental sustainability.
