CARSON CITY — Nevada Tourism is hoping travelers en route to Burning Man will yell “Hallelujah!” when they see the tourism division’s welcome stations on Interstate 80 and Highway 395 on Aug. 27-28.

Tents will be set up outside Boomtown Reno and Walmart in Gardnerville to welcome Burners to the Silver State and send them on their way a little more prepared for their time in the Black Rock Desert. The Hallelujah Stations will be stocked with collapsible water bottles, wet wipes, reusable bags, Nevada travel guides, and Nevada state maps.
