The largest Memorial Day observance in the U.S., Shinnyo Lantern Floating Hawai‘i, will return to Honolulu’s Ala Moana Beach on Monday, May 27, 2019. The powerful ceremony is expected to draw more than 50,000 residents and visitors from across the globe to honor fallen service members and loved ones who have passed. 7,000 candle-lit lanterns bearing remembrances, prayers, and also affirmations to perpetuate the goodness of those being remembered will be set afloat at Ala Moana Beach at sunset. The free event is officiated by Shinnyo-en, an international Buddhist community with Japanese roots, and presented by its locally-based, social-contributing arm Nā Lei Aloha Foundation. Themed “Many Rivers, One Ocean – Share Your Light,” the annual ceremony draws people from various ethnic, cultural and religious backgrounds in a gathering that aims to create a moment of collective remembrance, harmony and international friendship.
