Lantern Floating Hawaii

Memorial Day is a day of remembrance and honoring those who have fallen in the service of our country. In Hawaii, it is a day we visit our gravesites of our loved ones to spend time reminiscing about the fond memories that was shared and place offerings and flowers.

Every year on Memorial Day, Lantern Floating Hawaii hosts a ceremony that brings over 40,000 people together at Ala Moana Beach Park and joined by thousands around the world with a live streaming for an event honoring loved ones. The ceremony brings everyone together to remember, reflect and offering our gratitude for those that have gone before us

For those who are interested in participating, there will be a Lantern Request Tent, located at Ala Moana Beach on May 30, 2016 from 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM, or until the lanterns run out.

The live streaming of the event will be available on May 30, 2016 from 6:30 PM – 7:30 PM HST and can be viewed live on Hawaii News Now KGMB.

Over 6,000 candle-lit lanterns will be set afloat from Magic Island in remembrance of loved ones who have passed, or as symbolic prayer for a harmonious and peaceful future.

If you are in Hawaii during Memorial Day, this event is truly one you shouldn’t miss.
