2018 Wish Lantern Launch Cancelled

Due to the harsh weather MABA will have to cancel the Wish Lantern Launch for this year.  When it is so cold the lanterns do not rise like they need to.  We want a safe and memorable evening for everyone, and the weather is just not cooperating.  We are looking at other opportunities to launch our lanterns, it has become a special event to a lot of people.  We will keep you posted if and when an alternative date is chosen.  Thank you for all your support in the past, we will continue this beloved tradition in Nov. 2019 with Mother Nature’s cooperation.  Any questions, comments or  suggestions are welcome, please contact us at maba.info51551@gmail.com
