Lantern Festival in Jamaica Plain
The Forest Hills Educational Trust is pleased to announce that the 15th annual Lantern Festival will be held on Thursday, July 18th. A much-loved community event for Jamaica Plain, as well as Greater Boston, the Lantern Festival draws its inspiration from the Japanese Obon 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 multicultural performances and the warmth of the greater Boston community at this special annual event!
