Time: 7:30 PM on July 13, 2015 at Rajahmundry.
The festival will be held at Road cum Rail bridge in Rajahmundry. About 5000 sky lanterns shall be launched into the air over Godavari where the Jyothis (lanterns) float gracefully through the sky. Their reflections on river Godavari shall resemble large flocks of giant fluorescent jellyfish beautifully treading the waters.

He said every evening there will be a laser show on Historic Havelock Bridge, Prabhala festival at Kotipalli Revu, sand and art festival at Madhavaipalem in West Godavari.
Reliance Jio Info Com Ltd. (RJIL), subsidiary of Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) provided 171 state-of-the-art CCTV cameras to the city police. The police deployed these cameras along the pushkar bathing ghats, key junctions leading to the ghats, and public places.
Reliance Jio also helped in connecting all these surveillance cameras, with about 33 km stretch of optic fibre to a central police control room for monitoring the law and order situation at the ghats.
