Light Up Your Weekend with the Lantern Festival at the Morikami Museum
Celebrate the dazzling spectacle and rich heritage of the Lantern Festival! This amazing display is the most popular community gathering at the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens, offering attendees a chance to experience the iconic lantern floating ceremony in the spirit of Obon, Japan’s summer homage to ancestors who return for a brief visit to the living.
Enjoy Japanese folk-dancing, taiko drumming performances, and taste traditional Japanese street-fair food and drink at this family-friendly event. The Lantern Festival ceremony will include a special fireworks display and be held in conjunction with the Ennichi street fair, where vendors, games, and activities will be set up for everyone to enjoy. It’s a wonderful way to spend your weekend, with fun planned for the entire Saturday.
If you feel like escaping Glades Diamond Apartments in Belle Glade, Florida for the day, this event is a perfect opportunity to do just that!
