The burning of The Man's effigy at the end of the week-long festival.­

As soon as the last burning beam collapsed, a crowd of thousands runs toward the fire and around it in celebration.­

I managed to be one of the first ones near the fire (after zig-zagging between a few crowd-controlling Black Rock Rangers - sorry guys!), so i was able to get a few cool photos of the running melee.­
