Lantern Floating Hawaii
Starting in 2003, Billy V was one of the live television hosts for Lantern Floating Hawaii, officiated by Shinnyo-en, at Magic Island, Oʻahu. This event draws 50,000+ people on Memorial Day every year. Lantern Floating Hawaii is a day when people remember and honor those who have fallen in service to their country but also honors and remember family, friends; those who have left an impact on our lives by those of us still here. Billy V has shared the stage with wonderful co-hosts such as Kim Gennaula, Maya Perry, Dan Cooke, Mileka Lincoln and more.
