AIR DATE: May 10, 2011

Nevada's Black Rock Desert plays host to the annual Burning Man festival and this year organizers are getting cities from around the world involved in the festivities. As part of the event Burning Man attendees in cities around the U.S. and the world are building effigies representing the spirit of those cities. The effigies will be collected and burned at this year's Burning Man. Las Vegas' effigy will be a showgirl, and organizers are inviting the community to come out and help build it. We talk with one of the event organizers about the project.
