There many universes and many earths parallel to each-other.

There are worlds like yours: where Burning Man happens in Black Rock City, NV the 1st week of September.

There are worlds like Thunder Gumbo: where Freezing Man happens the 1st week of February in Brooklyn.

A week long festival that takes place IN ONE NIGHT!
Our scientists have created a trans-dimensional-enviro-shifter that will allow the attendees to party for an entire week in one night and fit 100,000 people into a single Bushwick warehouse. A gathering of tribes from our larger community, a collective pooling of energy where everything happens all the time, a gathering around the giant Ice Man effigy destruction ritual, a celebration of human warmth in a frozen era.

WELCOME TO FREEZING MAN in the Thunder Gumbo Universe!

If you can, please bring along a heavy coat in good condition to donate at our coat check. Jackets will go directly to New York Cares Coat Drive. To start your own coat drive in your building or office, see http://www.newyorkcares.org/coat-drive
