Road Readiness & Carnival Tips
- Be extremely careful around all parade vehicles e.g. music trucks, food trucks, etc.
- Eat a heavy breakfast, you never know the next time you'll be hungry and its a long day.
- Drink responsibly.
- Drink lots of water through the day to avoid dehydration.
- Sun block is your best friend, use it well, and take it with you to re-apply as often as necessary.
- Use Chap Stick or Lip Balm.
- Sunglasses always come in handy.
- Leave your valuables at home e.g. expensive jewellery.
- Only carry necessary cash on you.
- Always wear your pouch to the front.
- Avoid bringing purses as they are easy to loose and become a nuisance.
- Always move around in groups.
- Wear comfortable sneakers. We suggest you wear a ½ size bigger than what you would normally wear, so you can 'chip' to the music all day long.
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.
Be sure not to mix medication with alcohol.
