Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pebble Beach will host the 9th Annual Hindu Lamp Ceremony on Saturday, August 7th. This traditional Aarti ceremony conveys gratitude to mother river, reflects on community, and remembers loved ones.

In a year when New Yorkers have experienced so much loss, this seems like a thoughtful and fitting way to come together and acknowledge losses of all kinds. Join in on the decoration of palm leaf lamps and releasing them along the East River, paying respect to loved ones.

The Hindu Lamp Ceremony will take place on August 7, 2021 from 4:00 to 7:30pm on Pebble Beach at Brooklyn Bridge Park. This is a free event, open to the public. No advanced registration is required.
