The Burning Man event has taken place on public lands on the Black Rock Desert Playa every year but one since 1990.

The annual festival draws 70,000 people to create a temporary city in the northern Nevada desert, and the week each year culminates with the burning of the Man structure Saturday night and then the Temple structure on Sunday.
