The official opening of Burning Man is the traditional lighting of the fire, utilizing rays of the sun in El Diabla. This fire will be tended and fed by the community all week long. On Saturday evening, this fire will be transferred to the Luminferous and processed out and around the Great Circle before the fire dancing prior to the release of the Man in pyrotechnic delight.
