In case anyone is wondering what we mean when we say "lantern", let me clarify by saying that we mean it in the true sense of the word.
1. a transparent or translucent, usually portable, case for enclosing a light and protecting it from the wind, rain, etc.
2. the chamber at the top of a lighthouse, surrounding the light.
Portability is not required as show entries can be electrified. What is important is that the light be enclosed in the manner of a lantern. As for the second definition... it must be full size to qualify. ;)
