WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Grandmothers For Peace sponsored a celebration of International Day of Peace at Hugh MacRae Park Monday evening.

The group is hosting the event in hopes to inspire peace in our individual homes, our communities, and our world.

Peace Day was established by a United Nations resolution in 1981, and each year individuals and organizations from 175 nations gather to promote peace in their communities and the world.

Everyone was invited to bring a chair or blanket to Hugh MacRae Park for an hour of peaceful readings and music by the Wilmington Community Drummers.
