LAS VEGAS (AP) — A bit of Burning Man is headed to Las Vegas.
Organizers with arts festival First Friday Las Vegas say they’re holding the city’s first-ever public burn inspired by the annual Burning Man Festival in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert.
Organizers will ignite a 20-foot tall wooden showgirl sculpture dubbed “Lucky Lady Lucy” the night of Friday, March 2.
Fire performers are set to kick off a weekend of art and entertainment in the downtown business district.
First Friday outdoor street festivals have been running in Las Vegas for nine years and aim to develop a sense of community downtown.
