Summer, is a peak time for so many outdoor activities. From beach picnics, food festivals, music festivals, block parties, vendor’s showcases. The list goes on and on.
That said, here are a few tips that will certainly help you out for your next summer festival. PS This does not apply for a Fashion Festival.
GET THERE ON TIME:
You have to get there as soon as you can. To get a good parking space or a great seat. In cases of a food fest and vendors showcase, getting there on time guarantees you getting the goodies before it all get sold out.
CHARGE YOUR DEVICES:
We all love taking great pictures for the gram and for memories. You should pack a spare battery for your camera and a power bank for your phone.
WEAR COMFORTABLE SHOES:
Don’t misconstrue the word ‘comfortable’ for ‘dowdy’. Festival or not, shoes always need to be stylish so be conscious of what you are wearing on your feet for the long day ahead. White or black sneakers have emerged as the go-to casual shoe and are perfect for versatility and comfort.
MAP OUT A GAME PLAN:
Instead of diving heads first to the first vendor’s stall you see, map out a game plan by surveying the whole event and prioritize. Figure out what you really want. trust me you know that moment when you finally find something really nice five stalls away from where you spent all your money on things you might not really need?

A trusty backpack is a necessity for festival endeavors. You will want light styles, with an appropriate amount of room for your supplies. You also want to sling it conveniently over your shoulders without fear of losing any of your contents. If you are bringing a camera, ensure that you have a durable case that you can put it into even when it is in your backpack.
Lastly, if you are with friends, have a meet time and place. Remember where you parked your car.
