Relish a little serenity on the shoreline while performing the traditional Hindu Aarti ceremony at Brooklyn Bridge Park. Families will decorate palm leaf lamps and let them set sail on the East river in an act of gratitude and hope that mother river provide protection during hurricane season. The ceremony will be accompanied by a traditional percussion ensemble led by Paulomm. Kiddos will love the chance to learn about this important—and beautiful—Hindu ritual. All ages.
