May I fly Chinese Lanterns in Draper?

Chinese Lanterns, also known as Khoom Fay, Paper Lanterns, or Sky Lanterns, are floating lanterns made from flammable materials that are lit like candles. They emit a stunning glow, stay lit for up to 20 minutes, and can travel several miles. While beautiful and exciting, these lanterns create an extreme fire hazard and are prohibited in any part of Draper City. View the Chinese Lantern Information Sheet here.
