Every Memorial Day, tens of thousands gather on Oʻahu’s south shore and are joined by thousands more from around the world via live streaming and telecast for the Lantern Floating Hawaii ceremony. The ceremony allows for a personal and collective moment of remembrance, reflection, and offering gratitude to those who have gone before us.
The theme of Lantern Floating Hawaii is "Many Rivers, One Ocean." It is the hope of Her Holiness Shinso Ito that although each of us is unique in background and perspective, we can unite in one heart and create harmony and friendship through the lantern floating ceremony.
