There will be a Buddhist tribute to victims of the Aurora theater shootings in the opening ceremony at this year’s Colorado Dragon Boat Festival, on July 28 and 29.
“In response to last week’s tragic shooting in an Aurora movie theater, the opening ceremony will feature a chanted tribute to the victims of the violence by the Buddhist monks of the Chung Tai Zen Study Group of Denver, who will then lead the traditional Chinese Eye-Dotting Ceremony to awaken the spirit of the dragons at the festival,” according to a festival release.
