Thousands of people will be at Moonfest on Clematis street, in downtown West Palm Beach, from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. Saturday night. Maybe as many as 30,000 if we’re talking the number of bodies the organizers expect the event to attract.
Even though this is a grown folks night out (21+), every year there are costume fails—no matter the age. Here are the dos and don’ts of dressing up for Palm Beach County’s biggest Halloween extravaganza.
DON’T wear one of these. This is what will happen.
DO wear comfortable shoes.
Did we mention that this event will stretch from the 100 block to the 500 block of Clematis Street?
DO avoid nip slips.
There’s a such thing as fashion tape. Worth it.
DO leave your sharp prop at home.
Security may not let you in.
DO think about where you will put all of your dough.
DON’T do drugs.
Overheating happens. Dehydration is real.
DON’T waste your time putting together a religiously or politically offensive costume.
People will be drunk. They will try to beat you up.
DO use this as an opportunity to wear what you wear around your house when no ones around.
DO have fun with your costumes. Get creative!
