Winter LANTERN Festival 2019 - Staten Island, NY - We bought tickets for 5:00 festival, and left our apt 2-hours earlier. Perfect timing. We purchased $10.00 Parking, because $20.00 Parking was Sold Out, and it worked out perfect. Our Parking Garage was at Empire Mall - We walked up the stairs, then took the elevator up 1-floor & made a Left at the Gap store to get to the bus, to bring us to the Festival. Bus is FREE. Then EVERY 20-minutes the bus runs, to pick you up.
