Burning Man Festival 2009 in the Nevada Desert

Burning Man is an eight-day annual event held in the Black Rock Desert, in Northern Nevada. It takes its name from the ritual burning of a large wooden effigy on Saturday evening. The event is described by many participants as an experiment in community, radical self-expression, and radical self-reliance.

The event was open from the last Monday in August until Labor Day (August 31st to September 7th 2009, so yesterday). In 2008, 49,599 people participated in Burning Man, in 1986, it was only 20 people on a small beach in San Francisco.

It is all about art, music and performance and this year, the theme was “Evolution”.

Nice pic. The cost of the entry ticket encompasses the crude basics like the enormous common round tent, few power sources, lavatory among others. contributions from individuals are created unique bars, a clubs, skating ring. medical camps and the safekeepings take care of volunteers. You can purchase entry ticket for the coming year. Some kind of souvenir to each other that could be as simplistic as a mini salt pouch, toffees, novels, wine and even numerous meals. You
can enjoy music, al-fresco grills, body painting stalls, eateries.

Burning Man Festival appears to have started informally in 1986 and now draws thousands from around the world, is a temporary community in a remote Nevada Desert where participants combine artistic and personal freedom. In short: it's an intriguing way to step out of one's normal lifestyle for up to eight days.
