We sincerely appreciate your compliance with these requests. We work very hard to keep the value of Pridefest going through the duration of the event to maintain audience participation. Your engagement and enthusiasm with our Pridefest participants will ultimately make your experience the best it can be. The most effective way to work a booth that attracts a lot of people is to provide fun, interactive activities to engage passers-by. We highly recommend not sitting behind your table—unless you are giving something fabulous away for free. All booths are encouraged to have an activity. Also of course, number one rule HAVE FUN!
