Lantern Floating for Peace

Things to do, Festivals Free

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

Take part in a modern Shinnyo-en Buddhist lantern ceremony by building, decorating and floating your own lamp on a pond inside Trump Rink. While similar ceremonies are held annually in places like Japan and Hawaii, this is the first for NYC, where the theme “Be a Light for Peace” honors peacemakers one day after the United Nations’ International Day of Peace (Sat 21). All afternoon long, enjoy live performances by taiko drummers and local musicians.
