Burning Man 2019 takes place August 25 – September 2 in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada.
About 20,000 of the more than 70,000 event attendees make their way to the region via Reno- Tahoe International Airport (RNO).
And the airport is ready.
On Monday, a Burning Man art exhibition and therapy dogs dressed in costumes will welcome arriving burners.
Local volunteers and airport docents (perhaps in costumes as well) will be on site to help with information about and directions to the Playa.
And airport shops will be stocked with Burning Man essentials such as water, snacks, camping equipment and apparel.
The airport is also prepping for when the Burners leave.
Everything that comes back from the festival site will be covered with dust from the Playa that can ruin the baggage systems. So airlines are ready with rolls of large plastic bags to cover suitcases and anything else Burners will need to check in and take home.
