The Fair Generally
2017 Burning Man Decompression
Party
Pier 70, San Francisco, California

The decompression parties are sometimes reminiscent of early Burning Man festivals due to their informality and smaller size. They are a related phenomenon to the dead dog parties common at the end of science fiction conventions. [from wikipedia]

There were activities for children too. Here was a ball in a maze puzzle much like those seen on the "Survivor" program.
