Delray Beach, Fla. – April 30, 2012 – For the first time, the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens will limit tickets to its award-winning Bon Festival to be held on Saturday, August 18 from 4pm – 9pm. Tickets will go on sale Friday, June 1 and are expected to sell out.

 “Bon Festival has become a local and even national event, drawing more than 8,000 visitors each year,” said Marketing and Events Director Kizzy Sanchez Sherven. “In order to provide our guests with an exceptional experience and also maintain the integrity of Obon, we are listening to our visitors’ request for a more intimate festival.”

 This year, a limited number of tickets will be sold in advance online only. Tickets will not be sold at the gate. Tickets are $15 for adults (ages 18+), $6 for kids (ages 4-17), and FREE for members and kids 3 and under. To purchase tickets starting Friday, June 1, visit www.morikami.org/bon.

Inspired by Japan’s three-day Obon holiday honoring the spirits, the 35th Annual Bon Festival packs the holiday’s merriment into one breathtaking evening. Each year, thousands of guests travel to the Morikami for the awe-inspiring festival, which celebrates those who passed by remembering ancestors and thanking them for our quality of life.

Bon Festival features rousing taiko drum performances by Fushu Daiko, children’s activities, traditional Japanese folk dancing, American and Japanese cuisine, the Kirin Beer Garden and a Sake Station. When night falls, patrons pay homage to those who have passed on by floating individually decorated candlelit lanterns on Morikami Pond, a traditional Japanese ceremony known as tōrō nagashi. The myriad of lights created by the floating lanterns signifies the guidance of departed souls back to where they came after their brief visit.

“The Morikami is a unique place of contemplation, remembrance and honor,” said Sherven. “Every year, thousands of visitors choose the Morikami as a place to remember their loved ones and we want to savor that experience and the even more unique one Obon brings.”
