The Lantern Festival draws its inspiration from the Japanese Bon Festival..a celebration each year when a door opens to the world of their ancestors allowing loved ones to send messages to the other side.
Enjoy traditional Japanese dance from students of Showa Boston, Irish music from guitar and fiddle duo the Whiskey Boys, Chinese dragon dance from Gund Kwok and Grand Master Tsuji’s Taiko drummers. Ending with visitors decorating and lighting lanterns to float on the cemetery’s Lake Hibiscus.
