120th Community Memorial Service and Bon Dance

Strings of lighted paper lanterns will decorate the parking lot of Honoka‘a Hongwanji Buddhist Temple on Saturday, July 20, in preparations for the 120 th Community Memorial Service and Bon Dance. The space will fill with people in their colorful happi coats, dancing in a large circle around the central Yagura tower, to the rhythm of taiko drums (by Taishoji Taiko Drum group of Hilo).

Everyone is invited to join both the service and the dancing. This year, the Community Memorial Service and Bon Dance will be part of the program offerings in celebration of the 135th Anniversary of Honoka‘a School.

The Memorial Service takes place in the Social Hall at 5:30 p.m., where names of loved ones lost in the last year are read aloud, and family and friends invited to step forward and symbolically offer incense in their memory. Anyone—regardless of faith—is encouraged to participate. Please submit names by email to info@honokaahongwanjibuddhisttemple.org .

The Bon Dance follows, at 7 p.m. in the temple parking lot.

Visit our Facebook Event Page for more details about the evening.
