2020 Peace Lantern Ceremony | Berkeley
Decorate free candlelight peace lanterns to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima (Aug. 6, 1945) and Nagasaki (Aug. 9, 1945) at this Japanese-style peace event.
In Japan and around the world, people will gather in early August to float lanterns in remembrance of the victims of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, all victims of war, and all who have gone before us.
This moving and beautiful tradition provides a chance to reaffirm our commitment to building a better future.
