It is a full LARP (Live Action Roleplay) experience for the brave at heart!

The festival is packed with vendors with Genshin Impact merchandise, a dedicated photo op room, and two activity rooms with festival games and arts and crafts!So CHOOSE YOUR OWN PATH, and come swing by Lantern Rite this year in Grapevine!
The Teyvat Travel Guide will be your booklet and lifeline throughout the event. Inside will be instructions on how to do your quests, your stamp booklet for earning prizes, and more! It also will work as an awesome keepsake for when you return home, filled with memories of your day of questing!All extra activities (such as festival games) will cost you Mora to play. And yes, these will be real life, in your hands, gold mora coins to make your Genshin experience all the more real! You can spend Mora on Lantern Rite-hosted things only (so for example, they won't work with the artists in artist alley).
