Mahalo for your interest in being part of our Lantern Floating Hawaii volunteer ʻohana.

The hands and hearts of hundreds of volunteers make it possible for hundreds of thousands to remember their loved ones at the Lantern Floating Hawaii ceremony.

Volunteers prepare, light, collect and clean each lantern. Lantern preparation begins in March and lantern cleanup concludes in July.
