Burning Man Festival
Burning Man is yearly gathering of about 70,000 people, many from the San Francisco Bay Area, celebrating love, life, passion and art during one week in a desolated desert in Nevada.
The event takes place each last week of august in an immense dry lakebed called Black Rock Desert. A temporary city is built where about everything is permitted except violence, money and commerce.
The culmination of the event is the burning of a large human-shape figure in a giant bonfire, hence the name (Burning Man). The city disappears completely at the end of the week, leaving no trace.
If this sounds interesting, check out the official Burning Man website at www.burningman.org.
