Lanterns for Peace is the annual commemoration of the dropping of atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki during World War II. On this, the 70th anniversary, we draw inspiration from the tragic events by recognizing what we can achieve when we mobilize our nation’s resources and collective will behind confronting our county’s most pressing challenges.

Join us in lighting a brighter future!

The event features food, beer, live music, family activities, paper crane origami and making of traditional Japanese paper lanterns that will be illuminated and set afloat at dusk.
