DECOMPRESSION SF: THE 411
San Francisco’s Dogpatch neighborhood transforms into Black Top City this Saturday at
The 5th Annual HEAT THE STREET FaIRE! SF DECOMPRESSION is THIS Sunday! And–HOORAY!–are excited!! Come by right at noon. You won’t want to miss ANYTHING!
This year you can tune into Radio Free Burning Man, which will be broadcasting a 15 watt, FCC-compliant radio station at 99.5 FM. You will get it in the general area around the neighborhood and should tune in to get important information and music as you are parking.
8 ways you can help make Decompression even better!
1. Arrive festively attired, bring art to add to the day, and a picnic for the park.
2. Take mass transit or bike to the FaIRE! to cut down on parking waits and impact on the neighborhood. If driving, park on 3rd Street or in a lot near Pac Bell Park.
3. Thinking about getting changed in the street? Please don’t…A personal request from the people that live in the neighborhood and don’t want to see you naked and green–even if you are kind of cute!
4. Be quiet and courteous of neighbors on the way in and out; and pick up any debris on the street and surrounding blocks.
5. Sign up with Volunteer check-in at Playa Info, near the entrance to volunteer during Decompression. We need help to clean-up Esprit Park at 10pm and all of Indiana Street and surrounding blocks at Midnight.
6. All art cars, theme camps and art placed on Indiana Street must move to a legal parking spot at MIDNIGHT when the street re-opens.
7. Remember that ALL vehicles, theme camps and art of every kind must be entirely off of Indiana Street by 2am, so the street sweeper can come through. That also goes for 19th St and 20th St between Indiana and Minnesota.
8. Grab a garbage bag on your way out and pick up some trash so we can leave things cleaner than we found ’em!
Full schedule will be posted to the Decompression section of the Burning Man website Thursday!!!
