What is Balsa Man?

Sunday, July 19th, 2009


Last year was the first Balsa Man. It was a small, short, but nonetheless grand event. I don’t know what I loved best between the adorable tiny trash fence, the Temple of Reduced Expectations, the bubblegum pink Buddha sculptures, the Diminutive Dance Dance Immolation, the Psychic Pizza Delivery, the Balsa Man Burn itself, or the joyous participation of all who came!

If you missed last years Balsa Burn, you can experience it through the numerous photos and video of Balsa Man 2008:

p.s. Also check out EdRabbit’s own blog post wrap up of the event on Geeked Info.
