Where Oahu - - WHERE'S CALENDAR -

This Me­mo­rial Day, thou­sands of loved ones will be honored as Shin­nyo-en Hawaii will host its 18th an­nual Lan­tern Float­ing cer­e­mony. Since 1999, af­ter a suc­cess­ful turnout of 7,000 peo­ple for the first event in Ke‘ehi La­goon, Shin­nyo-en has since con­ducted the cer­e­mony at Ala Moana Beach Park. It has evolved into a 40,000-at­tendee event, filled with per­for­mances and bless­ings from var­i­ous re­li­gious sects in Hawai‘i, led by the leader of Shin­nyo-en, Her Ho­li­ness Shinso Ito. www.lantern­float­ing­
