About the event
Taking us three quarters of the way through our series with walk number eight.
The Hungry Ghosts Moon hangs full-bodied over lotus-shaped water lanterns, which are lighted and set to float on lakes, rivers and pools. These floating lanterns are offered to stranded souls unable to find their way back safely into the afterlife. This full moon is also known as the 'Sturgeon Moon' among Native American tribes as this is the time of year when Sturgeon are most common in the Great Lakes. We will be meeting at the sea wall opposite the Camelia Hotel to enjoy the moonlit night.
