Known more formally as the Black Rock Arts Festival, Burning Man is a temporary community which exists in the Black Rock Desert each Labor Day weekend. Individuals from all over the world gather to create a unique environment which focuses on creativity, art, and freedom of expression. A special feature of the event is a large wooden statue which is burned during the last evening.
