This unique and some what queer event is marked by the spirit of freedom and a wild reckless zeal that the participants bring along. Celebrated in Nevada every year, The Burning Man Festival is one of a kind and can be best felt and described once you be a part of it. This festival has its origin in the beaches of San Francisco and has come a long way to become an annual fiesta where 48,000 people gather to celebrate themselves. It derives its name from the ritual of burning a wooden effigy during the proceedings.
The most interesting part of The Burning Man Festival is the fact that there is no specific rules and regulations. All the participants are free to live those seven days in their own way, with no restriction on clothing, eating and boozing. The venue for the event is the Black Rock Desert of Nevada which turns into the Black Rock City during the festival. And once the celebrations are over and the crowd is gone there is no trace of anything. This is something fascinating! Since its early years, Burning Man Festival revolves round a central theme and the participants are encouraged to contribute to it in their individual capacity and talent making art an integral part of it. Theme parks are built all around and the folks work in a community. The two thousand volunteers make this unique festival possible every year that is synonymous with radical self expression and self reliance.
