No broadcasting of loud music, “glomping,” running, impromptu gymnastics or generally disruptive behavior will not be allowed.  Signs must be a part of an actual costume.  No “Free Hugs” or signs offering or selling anything are permitted.  Signs are subject to security inspection if large or contain any metal.  Signs must not contain any inappropriate content.
