So it’s finally that time of year. We can pretend to be something or someone we aren’t we aren’t. We can push the limits of what’s socially acceptable. We can eat as much candy as we want with little to no judgement. Oh, and we can (and will) attend some freaky, fun and fantastical festivals, of course! But don’t forget that there are some things that aren’t acceptable on fest grounds, no matter what holiday it is.

If this is your first festival, buckle up. If you’re a fest vet, this will serve as a friend reminder. The following items are items may be appropriate for your horror flick inspired costume, but you probably shouldn’t take them to a fest this Halloween…

1. CHAINSAWS

Yes, I’m talking to all you Leatherfaces out there this Halloweekend. We know lines and crowds can be overwhelming, but a polite “Excuse me” will go much further than literally cutting your way to the front.

2. HOCKEY MASKS

Leave the masks at home. Less crazy killer vibes. Plust, it’ll obstruct your view 😉

3. BLOOD

For the vampires out there, no blood please. Outside food and drink is usually prohibited.

4. POTIONS, PILLS & WITCHES BREW

It’s hard to sneak in a flask, let alone a whole cauldron. Plus, the billowing smoke clouds will give you away.
