You’ll have an opportunity to literally ring out the old year Sunday evening at Spokane Buddhist Temple.
Everyone attending the temple’s annual Joya-E Celebration, which begins at 7 p.m., rings the large Japanese Kansho bell during the service. Traditionally, the bell is rung 108 times during the New Year’s Eve service to symbolically put delusions in the past and announce aspirations to overcome ignorance, greed and anger in the coming year.
The service lasts about 45 minutes, leaving plenty of time to take part in other New Year’s Eve festivities.
The Spokane Buddhist Temple is at 927 S. Perry St.
