Make sure you bring everything you need for parade: shoes, socks, gloves, spats, extra reeds, etc. You should bring any hygiene products you might need like deodorant (the others on the bus will appreciate it), but take it easy on the Axe and other perfumes please.
You’ll be changing on the bus after you march, so you will want to wear something under your uniform that you can be seen in and you’ll be comfortable wearing for the rest of the night.
If you are in band and have long hair, regardless of gender, be ready to have it up in a shako bun — bring bobby pins.
Make sure you eat a good lunch and are well hydrated. It will be HOT. Bring money for food and fun after you march — your entry to the fair is free, but food and rides are not.
