Spectacular White Dove Release

This might strike you as tacky. Skip this one if you have lost your mother recently.

I was driving past a local cemetery and they had a sign:

Celebrate Mother's Day
Sunday May 11th at 2 pm
Spectacular White Dove Release
Light Refreshments

I was, well, gob smacked would be the right word. I could not imagine attending this event. Am I alone here or is this odd? What are the appropriate "light refreshments" for a celebrations of this type?

I'm guessing lemonade or punch.

But what bothers me is that all those white doves? Yeah, unless they were raised in the area of release, they'll all be dead within a week.

Maybe it is a cultural thing and I just don't get it?
