On August 6, candle-lit lanterns will bring messages of peace and hope in this annual event that honors victims of the 1945 atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and all victims of violence. The gathering at Green Lake will begin at 6pm, with the family program at 7pm, concluding with everyone putting their lanterns in the water around 8pm. Lanterns will be provided and personalized by calligraphers (with Japanese characters and Gurmukhi script). The event will take place just south of the Bathhouse Theater, on Green Lake’s NW shore, at West Green Lake Drive North and Stone Ave North.
