15TH ANNUAL LANTERN FESTIVAL
The Forest Hills Educational Trust is pleased to announce that the 15th annual Lantern Festival will be held on Thursday, July 18th (raindate: July 25). A much-loved community event for Jamaica Plain, as well as Greater Boston, the Lantern Festival draws its inspiration from the Japanese Bon Festival -- a celebration each year when a door opens to the world of their ancestors allowing loved ones to send messages to the other side. It is a time when neighbors come together to share stories, celebrate, and honor the memories of loved ones. Enjoy multicultural performances and the warmth of the greater Boston community at this special annual event!
Feel free to bring picnic stuff if you would like to have one by the lake Hibiscus.
We will enjoy the lanterns then get a late dinner nearby, possibly at JP Seafood or a similar location.
