What Fursuiters Should Expect
We will gather at the designated area of the parking lot with shorter attendees at the front of the group. Remember, if you can not see the photographer, they can not see you. Parents/minor guardians, please stand at the front with the photographers and rejoin your minor as the parade starts. During the parade we will fallow the sidewalk along the exterior of the building, enter the hotel, walk up the main hallway, and finish in the main events room. Water and long straws will be available in the main events space as well as at the group photo gathering area. If the main event space becomes over crowded we will open the fire door and allow the congregation to spill out into the grassy area outside.
What Spectators Should Expect
We request that spectators watch the parade from the exterior of the building to avoid clogging the hallways.
