Saskatchewan farmer hosts Melting Man Festival, the Canadian equivalent to Burning Man
Since the late '80s, thousands of liberal-minded individuals have gathered in the Nevada desert for a festival known as Burning Man. If Saskatchewan farmer Tom Vernon has his way, those same free spirits will be flocking north this December to attend his festival "Melting Man."
If they're willing to spend a week in the hellhole that is the Nevada desert, surely enough they'll do Saskatchewan in the middle of winter.- Tom Vernon, farmer
"When I heard about Burning Man, I thought how hard could it be to throw something similar on my farm in the dead of winter," explains 74-year-old Vernon. "We just got to build a big snowman, let people melt it, and viola we got a festival."
In this documentary we visit Tom's farm to experience "Melting Man" first hand and discover how difficult it is to host this ambitious event. Listen to the audio to learn about the symbolism behind the melting of a giant snowman.
