Final preparations are being done for this Memorial Day’s lantern floating ceremony at Ala Moana Beach.
Tens of thousands of people are expected to line the beach as about seven-thousand lanterns will be lit and released into the water to honor those who’ve passed.
From 10 a.m. people can request a lantern to write a message on it for loved ones.
The ceremony will begin at 6:30 Monday night.
Parking will be free at the Convention Center, with a free shuttle service.
The annual ceremony is put on by Shinnyo-En, a self-proclaimed “School of Esoteric Buddhism”.
