Lantern Festival

It threatened rain all day July 16, but fortunately the rain never materialized and the Forest Hills Cemetery Lantern Festival happened on a humid, overcast evening. People of all ages, genders, and colors came to enjoy Asian dance, music, and martial arts before preparing their lanterns. As the evening faded, lights began to float out on the water until the entire lake was ringed in light, filled with memories, joy, sadness, and beauty. You can view photos from the Festival here.
