It's A Playa Tradition
For as long as I can remember, the White Procession has been a thing at Burning Man. For years I'd try to drag myself out of my tent at dawn, but I'd invariably fail. Once I finally made it happen, I've rarely missed another.
All it is, really, is a quiet walk towards and gathering around the temple, wearing white, of course. For at least the last 6 or 7 years, Abraxas, the bronze dragon art car, has a sunrise white party out past the Temple..in deep playa.
It's not to be missed.
