Floating Lantern Peace Ceremony

  • Olympic Plaza 228 8 Avenue Southeast Calgary, AB, T2P 2M5 Canada (map)

Imagine a world at peace. Imagine no fear of nuclear weapons because they no longer exist. Imagine an event that planted a seed of hope which grew into fruition.

Hundreds of beautiful lanterns will be released as people think of their own loved ones and the hundreds of thousands affected by the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Lanterns available for rent.

Come join us. Music starts at 8pm, ceremony is 8.30pm to 9.20pm. Program includes Anthony Burbidge, an award winning musician, multicultural children’s choirs and drama, speakers recently honoured by the United Nations, greetings from mayors of cities around the world and more.
