Chinese lanterns, also known as sky lanterns, are illegal according to a 2014 press release sent out by Cape Town‘s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security, Alderman JP Smith.
Alderman Smith has said that Chinese lanterns are illegal and a fire hazard. The device contains a candle inside a paper or silk housing. The candle is lit and the heat generated causes the device to rise into the air. The device then remains airborne until the candle burns out and the remainder of the device then falls to the ground.
