This year’s Relay For Life was a success despite the rainy weather, but many missed the chance to light their luminaria (remembrance candles)—they’ll be able to on Friday, June 27.

This year’s Relay For Life was a success despite the rainy weather, but many missed the chance to light their luminaria (remembrance candles)—they’ll be able to on Friday, June 27.

The lighting will take place near Beach 84 Street. Luminaria will be sold on the boardwalk from 7 to 8 p.m., with the lighting ceremony scheduled for 8:30 p.m. More than 1,500 candles will be lit, according to JoAnne Sha­piro.

So far this year’s Rockaway Relay has raised more than $55,000.
