Janeann and all International Children's Festival Participants,
Here are some notes that I took at the meeting:
1. You can now set up the night before (6pm-8pm) if you like. Hampton Police will be stationed on the festival grounds all night for security. Or you can do as in the past, set up between 6:30- 8:30am on Sat morning.

2. There will be a one-way street flow at set up time. Enter from either entrance to Eaton St. (Settler’s Landing or Pembroke). Staff will be stationed nearby to help direct you. Empty your car ASAP and then move it so others can get in. All cars must be moved by 8:30am and any loading after than will be by hand cart only.

3. Do not drive on the grass.

4. Do not break down and leave until after 5pm. No packing up early.

5. I requested one back wall that will go halfway across our 20x10 booth, and one sidewall on the water side in case of wind or rain.

6. Plywood art needs to be finished and returned by April 11.

7. They will have a stage time for the melodrama and one Phil Duffy performance. He could perform in our tent as well as long as there is no amplifier.

8. They would like about 10 children in the parade of nations parade dressed in country costume. Can we contact an Irish dance group to perform and parade?

9. Call 757-727-8311 for info on weather related changes.
