Sri Lankan Vesak Lantern Display And Free Refreshments

Saturday 14th-Sunday 15th May 2022

A wonderful free experience. Vesak is a major religious event in Sri Lanka to celebrate the birth, enlightenment and passing away of Lord Buddha. Vesak Lanterns take a special place in the celebrations. The lantern is made up of recycled pallets, cardboards, papers, metal and led lights. The whole lantern is decorated with painstaking handmade carvings. All attendees will be given a refreshing complimentary cup of Ceylon tea with a traditional Sri Lankan snack.

Come and enjoy Sri Lankan Buddhist culture and spectacular lantern display.
