Preparations for lantern floating ceremony underway

Magic Island is almost ready for Monday’s lantern floating ceremony.

Crews have been setting up stages, chairs and sound systems for the 15th annual ceremony at Ala Moana Beach Park.

On Monday evening, more than 5,000 lanterns will be released into the water to honor loved ones who have passed away.

Traffic in and around the area will be busy.

The parking lot at Magic Island will be closed from 4 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Ala Moana Boulevard Waikiki-bound from Piikoi Street to Atkinson will be designated a “no parking tow away zone” from 4:30 to 10 p.m.

If traffic gets bad, police may limit access into the park and surrounding streets.
