Part of Water Festival at NHHS

05.13.19

The Newport Harbor High School Alumni Association invites you to the “Part of Water” Festival to honor the memory of Newport Beach Lifeguard Ben Carlson on Saturday, May 18 at Newport Harbor High School’s Robert B. Wents Theater. Each of the four showings at noon, 2:30 p.m., 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. will be followed by a Q&A session with the filmmakers, the Ben Carlson Foundation, and NHHS alumni who worked alongside Ben. A generous portion of the proceeds will benefit both the Ben Carlson Foundation and the NHHS Alumni Association’s scholarship program. 

Friends, families, and neighbors are invited to arrive early and stay after their show to enjoy the festival atmosphere. From 11 a.m. until 6:30 p.m., there will be food trucks including TK Burger, Sessions Deli, Banzai Bowls, and Massimo’s Pizza, and picnicking on the grass under the iconic NHHS tower. The whole family will enjoy booths set up by ocean-related educational organizations and non-profits like the Surfrider Foundation and the John Wayne Cancer Foundation, and local vendors like Yoki Shop, Electric Bike Company, and The Board Club. There will be an opportunity drawing, other entertainment, and a chance to visit the NHHS Heritage Hall museum.

Tickets are $30 for Priority Entrance and $20 for General Admission. A special price of $10 for Students and Children under 14 (accompanied by a parent as the film contains serious subject matter) is available for the first two showings at 12 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. A generous portion of the proceeds will benefit both the Ben Carlson Foundation and the NHHS Alumni Association’s scholarship program. Parking is available in the school’s main lot on 15th Street, and the facilities are wheelchair accessible.  

To purchase tickets and see the “Part of Water” trailer go to the NHHS Alumni Association’s website at newportharboralumni.org/movie.

Newport Harbor High School is at 600 Irvine Avenue in Newport Beach.
