Carrying on a 25-year tradition in Black Rock City, Lamplighters give the gifts of illumination, navigation, and celebration to Constellation. Every day at sundown we light and hang kerosene lanterns along the streets of the burn providing light, marking the streets (and portos), and signaling that the night has begun! Lamplighters needs your help to carry on this tradition and give these gifts back to our fellow burners. The roles for evening and morning shifts involve slightly different work.
PM shifts- Lamplighter Procession
Evening shifts consist of filling and lighting the lamps at HQ, then carrying them out into the city. Volunteers will be handling kerosene and walking a lap around the burn (about a mile).
AM shifts- Morning Pickup
Morning shifts consist of collecting the lamps from around the burn and bringing them back to HQ, then cleaning lantern globes and trimming wicks. Volunteers will be doing a lap of the burn (about a mile), and handling dirty lanterns.
