orange Chinese lanterns fly in formation over large party over 50 kids and adults witness

A large group of orange fireballs - 5 to 7 - few in formation over a block party with about 50 people stopping to watch. The orange red fireball like orbs flew in a formation for at least one minuet maybe two then headed south and vanished. Everyone around was watching the odd orange fireballs taking multiple photos and videos. Many people called them Chinese lanterns. The video and photos look like little lights in a dark sky although the shapes were very prominent and bright but did not photograph. Many witness dismissed them on sight as a plane or Chinese lantern.
