1st Ever Prescott Water Lantern Festival

Sep 1, 2019Prescott Events

We had the privilege of speaking with participants and coordinators yesterday evening at Prescott’s first, ever Water Lantern Festival.

It was a very moving experience for all and we received even more information from Taylor Bemner, an independent contractor for the Water Lantern Festival organization. He shared his insights into the meaning of the event in the video below.  Thank you to Taylor Robbins for his help with this story.  Also, after watching the video, please scroll down to hear more from him regarding the parking situation and crowds at Watson Lake for the event.

P.S. we always love to hear what your your experience was like at the Water Lantern Festival in the comments at the bottom of this post.Red Arrow Down

Some words from Taylor Bremner, independent contractor for the Water Lantern Festival organization:

We travel in crews of about six and we have about 4 or 5 crews that do this during the Summer. We go all over the nation with this group and sometimes we have a different, melting pot of a crew. But we all have the same object in mind and we really strive for it, I think. Trying to make a difference in the world…a good, positive difference.

 

 

On parking, patience, and crowds and Watson Lake:

I just hope people recognize that even though it may be hectic, I was in charge of parking tonight…and it was hectic! But they recognize that why we are here, what we’re celebrating, and I try to show that no matter how frustrated I may get. You know, it was rough! Parking tonight…you just roll with the punches and you keep smiling.
