Spring is upon us and as the ground thaws (not that it was ever really frozen this winter) the animals will awake from hibernation and begin the spring ritual of finding a suitable mate. But Wait! What is this? A foreboding storm approaches and threatens all living kind!! Their only hope is a man (some say he's crazy) and his epic ark. Built to last 40 days and nights of deluge this vessel will bring the animals 2 by 2 safely to dry land. So put on your fuzzy ears, tails, horns, and scales and party with Noah on the Party Arkk!!

The 8th annual Horned Ball is Kostume Kult's longest running Burning Man camp fundraiser. Every year HB is a riot of Horns and other Costumery as the animals stir and break free of winter sluggishness. Play along with this year's theme or do something completely different. Individuality, absurdity and your unique style is celebrated in an environment where all who make an effort are welcome. With past themes being Paleolithikk (2010) and Road to Valhalla (2011) note that, every year, there is a different Horned spin and patron god. Many play along, others chart their own path. All are welcome.
CALL TO ARTISTS AND VOLUNTEERS
Warsaw is a big venue with three rooms, a main stage, balcony and many corners to decorate. If you are interested to supply art, an activity or to otherwise volunteer, click HERE.
