Memorial Day is a special time all across America including on the Islands of Hawaii.
This May 28th between 6pm & 7.30pm more than 3000 floating lanterns will be launch, 2000 of these lanterns are available for the the public to get involved and launch a lantern out from the shores of Al Moana Beach.
Lantern Floating Hawaii is an organization with the aim to give people a personal moment to reflect, remember and offer gratitude to those that came before us. It is a chance to be surrounded by people in a caring environment and share some of the same emotions, memories and feelings.
The lanterns are hand made with the help of local volunteers including the Moanalua High School LEO Club, Radfort High School Global Studies and other dedicated and kind people. Below is a few images of the lanterns being constructed and a photo of the beautiful lanterns being launched into the bay. Some lanterns contain handwritten messages, poems and prayers as they twinkle and float gently with the summer tide.
