UnBroken Spring Update: Want to have a fall 2021 UnBroken Spring? Houston Burners is evaluating potential dates for a decision this month. You can help by providing your opinion about the best dates to build the playa on the prairie this year. Your input will also assist the volunteer board to evaluate how many tickets we can handle.

Please help spread the word and consider participating in UnBroken Spring. This year may be a more focused event bootstrapping as much as possible from our pre-investment in 2020, focused on getting down like we need to at a basic level — and revitalizing volunteer communities here in Texas or beyond.
Open the poll for more details and potential dates.
