Houpla Burning Man Theme Camp
Our community-sponsored Houpla theme camp once again brought a large crew of Houstonians to Burning Man in 2019 and kept its focus on introducing new people to Burning Man. Of the camp population of 50 folks, half attended Burning Man for the first time.
Houpla served daily breakfast tacos and hosted a hoopla carnival game handing out homemade pendant necklaces. The camp debuted a Harvey Water booth that served electrolyte beverages each afternoon coupled with global warming education. Nightly fire pit sessions were a highlight, as was the camp’s 2nd Annual Texas Nooner happy hour on Wednesday. To learn more about Houpla, please visit their webpage.
Burning Man Houston Community Truck
The all-volunteer Community Truck project again successfully moved Houstonians’ personal gear to and from Burning Man, along with all the camp gear for Houpla. It did so as the cheapest, as well as most-reliable, transportation option for the community.
Thank you to our volunteer drivers and all the folks that contributed to loading and unloading the truck! To learn more about the truck project, please visit its webpage.
Burning Man Houston Art Car
ter three years of bringing an art car based on a Chevy Tahoe base, the art car team tried something new and build an art car on a golf cart base. The result was “Houston, We Have a Problem” aka the Stubby Shuttle. The vehicle was approved for both a day and night license and provided much-needed on-playa transportation for the camp.
