lantern festivalThe Forest Hills Educational Trust will be having their 15th Annual Lantern Festival. The Annual Lantern Festival will be held on Thursday, July 18th at the Forest Hills Cemetery from 6pm-9pm.

"A much-loved community event for Jamaica Plain, as well as Greater Boston, the Lantern Festival draws its inspiration from the Japanese Bon 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!"
