Over 50,000 gathered at Magic Island Beach Park for the 20th Annual Shinnyo Lantern Floating Hawaii Ceremony. Her Holiness Shinso Ito presided over the ceremony as 7,000 Lanterns were set into the ocean. Following the event the lanterns used are collected from the water, handled with respect and recycled for the following year.
