Raindate: July 18.

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 traditional Japanese dance from students of Showa Boston, Irish music from guitar and fiddle duo the Whiskey Boys, gospel music from Ron Murphy and Grand Master Tsuji's Taiko drummers.

Admission is free; $10 donation requested per lantern to support the festival. No lighting after dark; bring a flashlight to assist your departure.

$10 parking fee - please take the T! Hide
