Olympic Plaza, 228 8 Ave SE, Calgary


Events Description


Come and enjoy the breathtaking beauty of lanterns on the Olympic Plaza pool. This is an annual peace event that shares a resolution to build a peaceful society and a world free from violence, especially the ultimate violence of nuclear weapons.

This summer, we will launch The 1000 Lights Offering Boat in order to honor the lives lost during the pandemic and so many children’s lives lost during the time of the Residential Schools.

We invite you to come ring a bell for a life that was lost. The 1000 BELLS will continue to ring for the hour as we open our hearts and minds to remember those that were lost.

Set to the harmonious singing of our guests, Indigenous singer Chantal Chagnon and Opera singer Leila Keith, we will launch the special boat that is made up of 1000 lights to honor the lives lost during the pandemic and the children’s lives lost in the residential schools. This beautiful joint performance will represent our unified effort to create a better and happier future for generations to come.

In this event, we will share the sorrows with each other, then share the united resolution to create a safer, healthier, and happier society and world for generations to come.
