♥ Be God's Glow at MJ's Lanterns of LOVE ♥
Who: Michael Jackson Fans of Southern California (MJFSC)
Where: Santa Monica Pier
When: June 26, 2014 8 to 11:00pm
Come to Santa Monica Pier and view luminary Lanterns of LOVE on the beach for Michael. MJ fans will meet on the beach on the South side beyond the pier. Write your message of LOVE on the Lantern for the event and then take it home with the LED lite for a memento. ♥
There will be 200 luminary lanterns of LOVE in the sand as tribute to Michael Jackson and in celebration of his life and all he gave the world.
As this is the first year for this event we are learning as we go. The lanterns can not be sold to the fans on the beach so they will now have to be purchased ahead of time.
Luminary lantern's for this Santa Monica event includes the decorative, die cut, flame retardant, luminary lantern and 2 LED lights. The price of each Lantern is $5.00. This covers the cost of each lantern + the 2 led lights, the shipping that was charged at the time I purchased them, taxes, Paypal fees, and Paypal's conversion fees.
There are only 200 lanterns available for purchase on a first come first serve basis. I have received so many requests from those around the world who want to take part in the sale of the lanterns. So it has been opened up for everyone whether you are attending or not to purchase a lantern, when those 200 have been purchased the Paypal account for this event will be closed. Feel free to purchase a lantern and be represented at this event where ever you live!!
Instructions to buy a lantern:
Parking Info: Santa Monica beach does not close. The parking is limited and many of the parking lots close at sunset. However the main 1550 parking lot next to the pier on the north side will be open and does not close.
** The 1550 parking lot on the north side of the pier is where MJ saw Cirque du Soliel in the big white tent for the first time with Branca. **
Come early to enjoy the pier rides: Merry go Round, Bumper Cars, Arcade games, Ferris wheel etc and to assure your parking spot. Please try to carpool and fit as many MJ fans into your car as possible. Many who are in L.A. for the 5th anniversary are from out of the country and will rely on others for transportation. MJ fans are great at this!
Main parking lot:
1550 Pacific Coast Highway
SANTA MONICA CA 90401
Parking rates range from $6 to $12 per hour
If an attendant is not on duty at the parking lot be sure to purchase a parking permit at the kiosk.
