The "Everything You Need To Know" Guide For Attending the Bigfoot Ball

The Inaugural Bigfoot Ball is only a couple of days away and here is everything you need to know about this event.

Gates open at 5:00 nobody will be permitted inside until then. You may need to show ID to security upon entering and your car will be subject to search. No glass is allowed inside and if you are underage in possession of alcohol, it will be poured out and you will be turned away. Obviously we want everybody to have a great time, but we need your cooperation in abiding by the law. You will be given a wrist band upon entering. Please keep it on during your entire stay.

Once in the parking lot, you will be free to carry (or drag or pull) your gear and find a camping spot. There are many to choose from, and chances are you will meet interesting people nearby. The Briar Patch is very community minded. Freaks are welcome! 

Music starts at 6:00. The times and line-up are as follows:

(6:00-7:30) Johnny Reeferseed and the High Rollers
(8:00-9:30) King of the Tramps
(10:00-11:30) The Maw
(12:00-1:30) The Rumpke Mountain Boys

Food vendors will be present, but you are welcome to bring your own in as well. Controlled fires are permitted. Please be aware of your surroundings and keep valuables hidden and safe. The Briar Patch cannot be responsible for lost or stolen items.

Prize tickets will be handed out and prizes will be given away throughout the night. Lots of good, weird stuff! You will also be allowed to vote for a king and a queen, and the winners will enjoy the distinction of holding that title until next year when we do this again. If you find any Easter style eggs laying around, be sure to open them, as you may find your fortune Some might even offer cool prizes!

We look forward to observing the traditions he has created during his tenure as master of ceremonies and we hope to create a few of our own.
