Como Park Japanese Obon Lantern Lighting
August 15 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The third Sunday in August is historically the Obon Festival at Como. Because of the pandemic, we are not having the festival this year, but we will have a small water lantern release beginning at 8pm on August 15th.
With the impact of COVID we have decided to do a more simpler Obon this year. While we won’t do the full festival, we will do a lantern launch in the Frog Pond and the Charlotte Partridge Ordway Japanese Garden at 8pm on August 15. This is free to attend. Viewing the lanterns in the Frog Pond will not require a reservation. If you would like to view the lanterns inside the Japanese Garden, mask will be required and you will need to make a reservation by clicking HERE.
