Bon Festival 2004

8/28/04  Morikami Museum, Delray Beach, FL

 

Visitors enjoying the warm glow of the lanterns in the park

 

If you live in South Florida, you must consider yourself very fortunate to have the Morikami Museum nearby. What a gem in our hectic world!

Throughout the year, the Morikami puts out many events, among them the Bon Festival, which represents the traditional Japanese remembrance of the Dead. You must experience it to understand why thousands of people attend it every year.

Despite the ferocious weather manifesting itself in the typical Floridian tropical rain, the festival withstood the challenge and kept its promise of a meaningful event. No thunder and lightning could keep visitors at home and it was that spirit which seemed to have contributed to this celebration. A celebration indeed, - the floating luminaries in the lake rekindled so many beautiful memories of dear people who passed.

We could add 86 more beads to the Love & Peace Project, and as the Project grows in length it also becomes heavier with memories of loved ones. It is significant to us how much each bead means to those who dedicate them, and we feel very responsible to carry that precious thought always with the Love & Peace Project.

Feel free to use the "Add Memories" form to share with us whatever anecdote or memory you would like to preserve.

 

So many fun things to do for kids
