Burning Mensch Returns!

Saturday, May 13th at 7pm

    Burning Mensch was ignited last year by the passion of a single burner, Joel Stanley. The minor Jewish holiday called Lag B’Omer is traditionally celebrated with fire and joy! Returning this year will be The Flaming Lotus Girls’ Angel of the Apocalypse for you and your family and friends to play with!

    This year, the South Bay community is pARTicipating to bring more art, more interactivity, and more fire! Theme camps and interactivity scheduled so far:

Fire poi and staff performances * Flame sword performance * Light (image) poi * Juggling instruction * Ecstatic Dance * House of Inanna tribal dance * LED Isis Light Wings performance * Jewish learning tent from Camp Milk & Honey * Face painting * Costume exchange * Labyrinth * Gifting project * Food workshop * Ali Bar Bar * Acroyoga * Transformation through Fire (Glass tiles display) * Art booth hosted by South Bay Burners Art Collective * plus more!

    Please let us know how you think you can contribute to this awesome celebration of fire! What can you and your theme camp bring? Write to us at and pARTicipate!
