Health and Safety

  • Drink plenty of fluids throughout the day to avoid dehydration.
  • Be cautious around aircraft and other displays that may have exposed sharp corners and edges that may damage skin.

  • Do not hesitate to seek help, such as water or a short stay in a shaded area.
  • Debris can be extremely hazardous to performers and spectators. Please make sure that all trash is deposited in trash receptacles to maintain a safe and clean environment for everyone.
