Be extremely careful around all parade vehicles e.g. music trucks, bar trucks, etc.
Drink responsibly. Do not drink and drive. Designate a Driver. And do NOT mix medication with alcohol.
Stay hydrated! Enjoy your alcoholic beverages but make sure to drink lots of water too. This way, you’ll avoid dehydration (and stay ROGUE on the ROAD).
Use sun block. Lots of it. And take it with you to re-apply as often as necessary.
Use lip balm.
Sunglasses save lives.
Leave your valuables at home e.g. expensive or flashy jewelry.
Make sure to take “vex money” with you, but only as much as you’ll need. To our foreign masqueraders, this means you should walk only with necessary cash.
If you’re wearing a pouch, always wear it to the front of your body.
Stick with a group. Don’t wander away alone, whether night or day.
This one’s for those feet! - Cut all toe nails before you get ROGUE on the ROAD. Wear comfortable sneakers or footwear. Going a ½ size up from your usual size can save lives – just like those sunglasses. You may also consider investing in comfortable inner soles to provide added cushioning. Remember, the pump doesn’t stop, so neither should you. Ready those feet!
Arrange a specific meeting point with your friends within the band in case you get lost. E.g. “the right side of the second DJ truck.” Remember, there are thousands of masqueraders in costume, and you may get separated at least once.
Do not accept drinks from strangers. Drinks are available from ROGUE Bars. Head to a bar instead of accepting a drink from someone you don’t know.
If you’re feeling unwell, for whatever reason, check our Medics throughout the band. They’ll take care of you and ensure you’re ROGUE READY, once more.
