{10 second vacation} The Floating Lantern Festival in Honolulu, Hawaii

Every year on Memorial Day, there is a huge Floating Lantern Festival at Ala Moana Park in Honolulu. People make paper lanterns to commemorate loved ones who have passed away, and at sunset they light a candle with each lantern and set them into the ocean. It is a moving experience that is aesthetically and emotionally very beautiful. For more information, check this website. You can find more of my Oahu and Honolulu recommendations here.

Wow looks beautiful!
Checked out your links and wanted to mention the Waikiki aquarium as well – I is really breath taking! Looking forward to visiting the island again soon!
