This happened, against the odds, BLAZING CAT. We burned the effigy of the Catolith at the Soggy Dry Lake Bed in the Johnson Valley, beneath the full moon on Halloween. The effigy was placed exactly at the perimeter of Federal Land and Marine Base Land.
The event was met with opposition from the authorities, and so it was necessary to find another location at the last minute.
There was an array of police trucks with large trailers stationed at Giant Rock over the weekend. It seems they were there to prevent the festival from happening. I never went there. I found a different location.
