I’ve never been to the event, how does it work? What should I bring to the festival?
We get asked this a lot, and outside of a picnic and company of your choice there really is no right answer; only a deep sense of wanting to be silly and say something like, stuffed animals and skittles. I will tell you that there are usually 4 performances with brief DJ interludes, lots of singing along and gleeful dance.
