[bra_dropcaps style=’dropcap2′]K[/bra_dropcaps]iwiburn 2015: Wyrd was the hottest on record in so many ways! With daily temperatures over 30C, we were blessed to have Burning Seed’s Mint Country Club (MCC) roaming the Paddock gifting refreshing beverages to many of the 950+ participants.
The MCC joined forces with Cape Carnival, a few of whom had camped with MCC at Seed in 2014. Jayman was back too, and our hardworking Ministry of Public Works was full of Aussies too, so ‘Straya Day was a little raucous!
It’s the 12th Kiwiburn and the second at the Hunterville site, and we had the most interactive art we’ve ever seen as well as an incredible Temple, and a female Effigy for the first time. Both burns were spectacular. The busiest place during the day was ‘beachside’ by the cooling waters of the Rangitikei River and nighttime hot spots were Barrio del Chur!, Dancealot, Balrog’s Playpen and The Camp Formerly Known As F^ck Yeah!
We loved having so many of our Australian neighbours burning with us – thank you so much for making such a huge effort to be there. It warmed our hearts and goon bags. We hope to see more of you next year!
