AIR DATE: March 5, 2012

Lady Lucy is a Las Vegas showgirl.  She's 20 feet tall.  And she's about to be put on display and set on fire this Friday.  "Lucky Lady Lucy" is the sculpture that will go up in flames as part of Las Vegas' own version of the Burning Man Festival.  We talk to the artist who designed Lucy, and the project manager who will help her go up in smoke safely in the middle of downtown traffic.
