Burning Man Festival: History of the Celebration

Burning Man Festival: History of the Celebration The first Burning Man took place on June 21, 1986, and took place on a San Francisco beach. When groups of people swarmed to the huge burning effigy of a man that night, the founders knew they were onto something. Year after year, the effigies and the popularity grew. The festival is best-known to outsiders for that event, when a huge wooden structure shaped like a man is set aflame at the event of the festival each year. But Burning Man is as much about kinship, culture, self-reliance and art as it is about that. In this video, WatchMojo.com learns more about the origins, history and evolution of the Burning Man Festival.
