Fire art cars and live fire performers also light the night. Empire of Dirt presents The Golden Mean, a giant snail car by Kyrsten Mate and Jon Sarriugarte. Attendees are invited to create luminaries to place in the garden. Music and sound installations including didjeridu and flute fill the night air. A silent auction, food trucks, and beer & wine add to the festivities.
