The water lantern festival Austin, and others like it, are a truly unique experience. It’s magical to see all the lanterns being lit and set out into the water. It is so peaceful and calming, the overall effect is very uplifting and peaceful.
The idea for the festival is rooted in a lot of tradition and culture. It’s about hope and happiness for the future while respecting and honoring the past, roots, traditions, etc. I a much broader sense it’s also a really nice chance to slow down and do something that is less hectic than our usual day to day activities.
At dark the lanterns (which have been specially designed to be safe, easy to clean up, and environmentally friendly) are launched out into the water. Each person can launch their own so the process can’t really be rushed or frantic.
It’s so cool to see the lanterns that everyone has designed and of course it’s really special when you get to launch your own lantern out into the water. Once the lanterns are all out on the water, glimmering, and shining with their lights, it is a magical sight to behold.
After the event there is a whole crew of staff who make sure that each an every lantern that is set out into the water is properly cleaned up and disposed of to avoid any negative environmental impact. That is just one of the reasons why must use the lanterns that are provided by the event staff in order to participate.
