The Falls Festival occurs annually at New Year's Eve, and features all sorts of events to captivate attendees. Concerts, dance, theatre, and art displays are only a small smattering of what attendees can expect to find. Those who attend are able to camp at the site, with access to swimming, rides, and other fun attractions. It helps to know what to bring, so that attendees can have the best experience possible.
Identification and cash
Festival attendees must have their tickets, of course, but they should also bring identification and cash. Attendees must be able to show their identification to prove that they are least 18 years old to attend the festival without being accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Falls Festival does provide ATMs for attendees, but bringing cash in advance saves both money and time. A wallet with a wrist strap helps to keep everything close by when necessary, without adding weight or bulk.
Since the festival is outside, attendees should bring a variety of clothing options to plan for different types of weather. The days are warm, with crop tops, flowy dresses, and jean shorts in abundance. To prepare for a chill in the air when the sun goes down bring warm clothing including socks, a jacket, and pants. Attendees should remember to pack extra clothes in case of rain, mud, or other instances requiring a change in clothing.
The festival recommends that attendees wear or bring closed toe shoes, since the event is outside. Sandals or thongs can lead to injuries, since the ground can be uneven. Attendees should choose shoes with good support that hold up well to hours of walking and standing.
Due to the outside nature of the event, attendees should bring a tent, sleeping bag, pillow, and extra blankets. The area does get cold after sundown, so it is important that attendees are able to stay warm. A torch and other camping essentials such as a cooler help to round out the items that can help make the weekend more enjoyable.
Sunscreen and insect repellent
The sun is hot during the day, and in the evenings, the bugs come out to play. Attendees should be prepared for both situations and bring sunscreen as well as insect repellent to keep their stay as pleasant as possible. To save space pack smaller packets of each, rather than large bottles that are cumbersome and difficult to carry around the festival grounds.
Food and drink
The Festival encourages attendees to bring food with them, as long as none of the items are in glass containers. Food is available at the festival, but attendees can save some cash for other purchases by bringing their own edibles. Falls Festival also encourages attendees to bring their own water bottles to refill throughout the course of their stay. Water stations around the festival grounds make it easy to refill water bottles whenever necessary.
Some attendees assume that because they are camping, they are going to have to rough it for the entire weekend. However, that is not the case because the festival grounds have several shower stations set up for everyone to use. Attendees must use coins to operate the showers, so they should plan ahead for that. A small bag with shower items is a good idea, since festivalgoers can simply scoop up the bag and a fresh set of clothes when it is time to bathe.
Although attendees are encouraged to bring quite a few things with them to Falls Festival, some items make the banned list. One of the most important banned items is anything made from glass, which can break easily and cause injuries. Some other items on the banned list include:
- Large furniture
- Cookware that uses a naked flame
- Laser pointers
- Professional cameras
How to buy items to pack for Falls Festival 2015 on eBay
Sellers on eBay have everything you need in order to pack properly for Falls Festival 2015. Once you know what you already have, it is easier to determine what you need. If you still need a tent, for example, perform a search for the tent either in general or by brand name. If you know that you are going to attend with several people and need large sleeping accommodations, make sure to include that information in the search to narrow the results. A two-person tent is not comfortable for four, so it pays to get the right size.
