The Japanese Lantern Ceremony for World Peace will once again take place on August 6th, the anniversary of the dropping of the world’s first atomic bomb on Hiroshima killing 140,000 people.

So it is on August 6th the people of Brandon will join peoples from all over the world to float lanterns to honour the souls of the dead who lost their lives as a result of war and to affirm our commitment to building a peaceful future.

Lanterns will be made and floated on the water at sunset. (Lantern making supplies will be provided free of cost.) Please bring a lawn chair.
