Even with Burning Man 2020 cancelled this year due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, we still managed to have our own Man Burn at Trapeze High. The Man was only 4 feet high and dressed in a gasoline-drenched Burner Express Air t-shirt, but he went up in flames quite nicely. Even though we didn't have any fire dancers or fireworks during the Burn, we had an Art Bike pumping electronica music accompanied by a two man drum circle.
The one benefit of a Backyard Man Burn is there were no Black Rock Rangers to keep us from roasting marshmallows in the flames for S’mores.
Encinitas is definitely not Black Rock City, but I still had fun wearing one of my Burner Outfits while shopping at Target and Trader Joe's on Sunday. It made wearing a mask feel more normal! Ha!
