Parades or Processions at the Burn

Post by stormfeather » Thu May 03, 2007 12:55 pm

This greenhorn wants to know...
Is there a list anywhere of the traditionally held parades/processions at the Burn? How are they announced?

I've heard about...

Is that the "white procession"?

Is it just the Monkey Puzzlers or are all invited to join in?

Are you a member of that camp? Then perhaps I met you at Diversion last fall?

i think sometimes white, sometimes black?? I'm in their neighbor camp; my impression is that if you're in the 'right place', with appropriate mindset and mourners' attire...

My favorite parade

Most of the people on the playa were kind of mosying around in their playa finery after the fashion show, thinking about burning the Man pretty soon. A well known rainbow shaman started making a bit of a racket, saying, "Hey, Why don't we all parade from here to the Man. It'll be sort of like a ritual." All he got were kind of blank looks and people saying, "Why would we want to do that?"

Parades

There used to be an Art Car parade and a DPW parade, and a processional from center camp to the burn, but I don't know if this is still happening though? Make your own parade for burners who always wanted a parade but were not invited to the others. The parade of Misfit Burners? :lol:
The art is in the details

The DPW parade did happen in 2006, as it rolled by our camp at 4:30p and Brave on Thursday (Or was it Friday?).
