    • Please be respectful of the hard work members have put into the float and to pick up after yourself.
    • Do not leave anything on the float, including Personal Items. Do not bring anything expensive or important to the float. Keep your wallet, ID, money, purse, sunglasses, keys, cameras etc. on you at all times.
    • Stay away from the float, tow vehicle and hitch area at all times and respect safety security as they stop members away from the float. Floats move slowly and have bad visibility. Watch your back and do not lean over to pick up beads off the street.
    • Depending on attendance, not everyone will be able to ride on the float. Please allow spaces for people who need them.

You can have lights under your kilt etc and can wear tights/socks that are themed even if they don't match a color in your kilt. Everyone wear comfortable shoes, boots per costume Rules (Green is acceptable for this parade).  CLICK HERE. 


      Guests

    No guests of any kind are allowed during the actual parade. Only members of Brigadoon and Safety/ Security may walk with us, around or on our float.  Anyone who is not a Krewe member must leave the area 10 minutes before the parade starts. 

     Safety

    If you are falling down intoxicated and Security feels you are a safety risk. You will be required to be on the float for the rest of the parade.  Tougher rules on intoxication members, by putting them on the float (Drunk Tank) if they are not willing to listen or can not walk for their own safety. Security Officers will make that judgement call and will be enforced.

    Do NOT walk alone during and especially after this parade. Walk in well lit areas and stay together with other krewe members. For you safety we recommend you to stick together in groups.

     Conduct

    Everyone please be RESPECTFUL to the parade marshals and our Safety & Security team protecting us.

      

    Beads No suitcases please and No BOXES!

    Please put bead bags in the storage shelves or up in the village or in the castle. Make sure your name is marked clearly on all bags.

    Do not pile beads on the back of the float, or in the walkways painted black. Beads MUST have your name on them! Take your beads out of the box at home and use a disposable bag.

    Do not bring suitcases, duffle bags or coolers and lay them all over the float floor, especially on the rear of the float. Buy "Throw” beads, about one box (60 dozen) should work well for this short parade. Put beads in disposable plastic bags. No suitcases, NO BOXES, or coolers allowed. If you do not put your name on your beads someone may accidentally throw them for you or move them to another location.
