At each festival, Johnny Phoenix lights a torch for his firewalk with Barbie strapped to the torch. He retires each Barbeque Barbie at the end of each faire. He gave it to Don Grim at the end of the Great Lakes Medieval Faire on 8/14/11. Don wore a doctor outfit and declared Barbie to be fine, though she will be ugly the rest of her life!
