The public is invited to a community gathering to honor victims of atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan 78 years ago. The commemoration is planned for August 6 at the Alton Baker Park Peace Pavilion.

Japanese taiko drumming opens the event at 7:00 p.m. at the park. The event includes speeches, Obon dancing, origami, and Chinese calligraphy, and concludes at dusk with a ceremony of floating lanterns that are lit to honor those who have died due to the bombing. Each lantern is also a symbol of making a personal commitment to advocate for peace in the world.
