7/9 Burning down the house! er, parking lot…

Posted by novoscene on July 9, 2008

It’s that time of year again, when the parking lot across from the West Oakland Bart Station blazes bright into the night, huge metal dragons, robots and thingamawhutzits spring into fire spitting life and pyromaniacs from far and wide come to get their fix before heading to that big hot party in the desert.

Yes folks, It’s Fire Arts Festival time, and the Crucible’s annual fund raiser will be lighting up the sky around 7th and Nelson Mandela from tonight through July 12.

We’ve covered the Crucible quite a bit, but now this year there’s a snazzy new promo video that does the job a lot more succinctly-y’know that whole picture’s worth a thousand words thing. Video has this weird tendency to capture flaming burlesque dancers and spiraling columns of fire in a way that just doesn’t translate into words. Who knew? So anyway, here ya go.-kwan

Crucible Fire Arts Festival
July 9-12
