World AIDS Day Wish Lantern Lighting

Posted By on Wed, Nov 25, 2015 at 11:45 AM

Friends For Life will observe World AIDS Day this year by releasing hundreds of airborne wish lanterns over the Mississippi River.

On Tuesday, December 1st at 5 p.m., supporters, staff, and volunteers for the nonprofit HIV/AIDS service organization will gather at Beale Street Plaza and River View Island, just a block north of Beale Street Landing.

Hundreds of paper lanterns will be lit and released into the air to honor those who have passed away from complications of HIV/AIDS and to celebrate the lives of those living with HIV/AIDS.

If it rains, the celebration will be moved underneath the breezeway at Beale Street Landing, and luminaries will be lit instead of wish lanterns.
