Every year, tens of thousands of people gather on Oahu’s south shore along with thousands more who join this event via live streaming and telecast to honor loved ones and generate hope toward the future. Lantern Floating Hawaii allows people a personal moment to remember, reflect and offer gratitude to those who came before us. It is also a collective experience where families, friends and even strangers reach out with love and understanding to support one-another. We become stronger as a community when we are able to recognize our shared values. Lantern Floating Hawaii helps to open our hearts in an experience that transcends the human boundaries that usually divide us.
