Wear sturdy shoes as trails may be muddy and uneven in places.

We need help setting up, at the event and after the event. Volunteers should be prepared to work a three hour shift. They should dress warmly (hats, gloves, boots, long johns) and bring extra layers - it gets cold standing outside all evening. Wear clothes they don't mind getting dirty (jeans, sweatshirts) and be aware the ground may be muddy.
