Snacks!
Pack a lawn chair. (Chairs with roofs are acceptable!)
Anything and everything that will keep you cool! (Personal misting fans are OK!)

What else have we done to help you stay cool during the event?
We secured an additional 1,000 bottles of water!
We have added 2 water misting stations near the restrooms.
The Barn will be air conditioned should you need to escape the heat (no alcohol allowed).
