Things to leave at home if you’re attending the Montana Folk Festival
Yesterday we took a look at some of the items you'll need if you're attending this weekend's Montana Folk Festival. Things like sunscreen, toiletries and spare cash. Today we are going to look at a few things that should be left at home.
1. ILLEGAL DRUGS AND FIREARMS.
It goes without saying that these items are prohibited and will be grounds for ejection from the site. Organizers and law enforcement will strictly enforce these policies and if you are caught in possession, the penalties could be severe. For the safety of all around you, please leave the contraband at home.
2. GLASS CONTAINERS
We are expecting a very hot Folk Festival weekend and while staying hydrated is crucial, so is the type of container you use for beverages. Glass containers or bottles can break and shatter and with the amount of foot traffic expected, glass shards can be dangerous, especially to small children. Bring a plastic water bottle if you have to or purchase your refreshments from one of the many food vendors that will be on site and readily available.
3. VALUABLES OR SENTIMENTAL ITEMS
The Montana Folk Festival covers a lot of square footage in Uptown Butte and with over 100,000 people expected to attend it will be very difficult to recover any lost items. Don't wear any valuable jewelry and leave home any sentimental items that could be lost or stolen.
4. COOLERS OR OUTSIDE FOOD
First of all, there will be plenty of food available. Probably some kinds of food that you've never tried before. Use the food trucks. Try something different and support the businesses that add to the festival experience.
